Volunteering role

Volunteer Driver

Getting around the city can be a real problem for many people as they grow older, and for those who have disabilities or disabling illness. If you’ve got your own vehicle and some time to spare, you can help people get to the places they need to stay happy and healthy.

Time required

Flexible, get in touch to discuss. We’d like you to be able to commit to a minimum of six months.

Key skills required

  • Reliable
  • Trustworthy
  • Able to relate well to older people
  • A safe driver
  • Happy to regularly check in with our Volunteer Coordinator
  • Able to complete basic reporting back to us

As a volunteer driver, you’ll use your own car to help our people in the city get to the places they need – to and from the shops and to hospital, medical and dental appointments. You’ll be given lots of training and support, and all your out-of-pocket travel expenses will be reimbursed. You will need to check with your own insurers that they are happy for you to do this; most companies will not charge. If they do, we may be able to cover this.

Befriending Volunteer

There are so many people in our city who long for a little company and support at home each week from someone just like you. Give an hour or two of your time each week and you could change someone’s world.
