Volunteer Drivers are always needed to give lifts using their own cars or to drive our minibuses and MPVs. Passenger Assistants are also needed for the minibuses (to help people on and off the vehicle). You can apply to join the team as a driver or passenger assistant at any time.
Some areas provide only a car service, where the car owner/driver volunteers their time and is reimbursed for their fuel costs.
You will need:
- to be over 21 years of age
- a clean driving licence
- time to spare on a regular basis
- a DBS check, which we will do for you if appointed
- to attend 3-4 days of training before starting your role
Each driver can choose exactly which journeys he or she would like to make. These can be regular or occasional journeys, short or long distances, and at any time of the day or evening.
The commitment is only what you can give – a request can always be declined if it is inconvenient.
Drivers’ car mileage expenses are met at a rate which is fixed by HMRC. We also offer extra insurance to protect your No Claims Bonus.
