Keep Mobile provides a regular programme of excursions with venues to suit most people and to suit the time of year.  Excursions are planned by a committee made up of members, carers, drivers, volunteers and management who decide on suitable venues and for new suggestions received by members.

The committee select trips which can be all-day or half-day trips to suit the many members unable to cope with a long day trip. Most months the committee include a short outing for a lunch in a relatively local pub - this is usually very popular! All venues are assessed before the trip is put into the programme for suitability of access and provision of disabled toilet facilities and of course the price!.

Three times a year a programme is sent out to all subscribing members (Excursions may only be booked by Keep Mobile members who subscribe to the excursions including newsletter service). This programme details the venues selected for the next few months. Members may bring a spouse, friend or relative along with them as a companion or carer. Keep Mobile has a number of volunteer passenger assistants who can provide support if required, please request this at the time of ordering your ticket. The member requesting the tickets is responsible for paying for any additional companion required.

Ticket requests received by the 12th of the month prior to the excursion dates are allocated to the trip and successful applicants are notified by way of a travel voucher and a payment request. If trips are oversubscribed, it may be possible to run the trip again on an additional date, in which case members who are allocated tickets on the alternative date are notified by post. If it is not possible to allocate tickets to everyone who has requested them, unsuccessful applicants are put on the waiting list and receive a waiting list notification. Places are then offered to waiting list passengers if and when cancellations are received.  If you would like to go on a trip that is within the next 7 days please phone 0345 5440850 (option 1) and we will see what can be done.

Excursion fares vary according to distance and admission charges for the venue. The programme will always state what the cost includes and whether food is included.
