Meet the Team
Our whole team are dedicated to providing this valuable service to our island, and they do so outside their full-time employment.
We have a small fleet of assessment vehicles, including standard manual and automatic transmission vehicles. All are fitted with dual controls for safety purposes (both ours and yours!)
We also have a specifically adapted vehicle designed to meet most individual needs, which has been generously donated by the Greville Bathe fund.
About the Charity
This charity was founded by Pam Evans, a teacher, who suffered a severe brain haemorrhage on her 56th birthday, leaving her paralysed down the left side of her body. Pam went to England for her mobility assessment and found the whole procedure stressful and expensive.
On her return to Jersey, she was determined that this service should be available to all the physically disabled people in Jersey. She felt particularly concerned that there was no provision on the island for young disabled people to learn to drive with the use of a specifically adapted car. Pam set about fund raising and forming a committee, which led to the establishment of Driving For the Disabled, Jersey in 2006. This has now developed into the more extensive service, DriveAbility Jersey.
