Serving Beverley, Cottingham, Pocklington, Market Weighton and surrounding areas
We will provide a caring and sustainable transport service, at the heart of our community, for everyone who needs our help. With dedication and compassion, we will combat social and rural isolation by getting people out and about and by keeping them in touch with their community.
To increase access to medical and social activities for any resident who is unable to use other means of transport – regardless of age, abilities, background or financial means.
Beverley Community Lift began life as Beverley Community Care Service and was established in 1970.
The charity was set up as a neighbourhood support service for every street in Beverley, with churches and help groups involved. The range of assistance available included gardening, shopping and help to attend medical appointments.
The first minibus was donated in the early 1970s, a gift from Beverley Roundtable.
We operate one charity shop, at Sow Hill Road in Beverley, close to the Bus Station.
We have about 200 people on our database and over 95% of the people who are supported by BCL are 65 and over.
