Former RAF Operations Officer, Rachel Scott, has her wheels firmly on the ground with her new business providing specialist transport and companionship services for older, disabled people and others needing a little extra care to get around.
Rachel dropped by the office of Stockton North MP, Alex Cunningham, to show him her specialist vehicle and talked about her developing Driving Miss Daisy business, founded just a few months ago.
The franchised service on offer is wide ranging, including trips to doctors, hairdressers, shops and even taking a client’s pets to the vet. But as well as comfortable and safe transport, Rachel offers a companionship service to assist clients with shopping and other tasks when they are out.
She told Alex that she tries to provide the kind of support a member of the family would if they were available to help.
“We really care about making every journey a pleasure, and all our companions are safety checked, licenced and first aid accredited for peace of mind,” she said. “Helping people live the life they want and deserve is so rewarding.”
“It was a pleasure to meet Rachel and hear about her new business and how she plans to expand over the coming months. I wish her every success with developing her business and providing a unique service to local people who need that little extra bit of help to get out and about and deal with daily chores and journeys.”
