Phone 07817 926736 Weekdays 10am - Noon

Information for Volunteers

  • We have 20 drivers who have varying amounts of time that they are able to devote to helping our clients.

  • Our drivers decide how much time they have available in a particular week  and there is no pressure to do more than that.

  • Our clients are mainly elderly and we take them to various medical appointments and return them home afterwards.

  • Our drivers usually wait with our clients unless it is impractical to do so.

  • Our clients pay a charge directly to the driver.

  • You will be told the type of charge to impose when you accept the drive.

  • Our drivers receive 45p per mile to cover vehicle running costs.

  • To take telephone bookings from clients and schedule them with our drivers at the end of each week.

  • The work is carried out in your own home and would suit a non-driver or somebody who is tied to the home.

  • Bookings are taken between 10am and Noon, Monday - Friday.

  • This is a straight-forward but important task and full, informal training will be given.

  • Incoming calls come to our mobile phone and you will be reimbursed for any use of your own phone.
