Branded with out brand new Southern 360 logo, we introduced threw new minibuses to the Isle of Wight to help our customers in care and support services get around with ease.
The new minibuses are fully adapted to meet a wide range of mobility needs and have flexible seating to accommodate wheelchairs.
Our Southern 360 team based on the Isle of Wight will use the minibuses to ensure residents and customers socialise, get to activities and appointments on time or simply visit the shops or other amenities.
To celebrate their arrival, customers from Furze Brake, one of the Group’s extra care schemes in Newport, were invited for an exclusive first look and a maiden voyage in the new vehicles.
Brian, one of our customers at Furze Brake, said: ‘We feel so lucky to have these brand-new minibuses to use. They are much easier to get in and out of and we are looking forward to getting out and about for trips and visits.’
Another resident, Les, added: ‘The new minibuses are amazing. It will be nice that we can take people in wheelchairs out and about.'
Southern 360, our new brand committed to providing community investment, care and supported independence, and independent housing for later life, launched earlier this month.
