Lift Companion Driving was created by Helen Beddard and was inspired by difficulties that her family members faced due to disability. Helen’s mother’s mobility became increasingly challenged, after a spinal injury, when Helen was a child. She experienced first-hand the difficulties that her mother faced, just getting out and about, often relying on relatives and friends for her transport needs.
The idea of a companion driving service was something Helen had always felt passionate about and wanted to create. After spending many years as a Senior Manager for a local childcare company, Helen decided it was time for Lift Companion Driving to become a reality.
Helen’s goal is to provide a quality, safe, reliable and friendly service, where every client is treated with warmth and respect, just like family.
