Volunteering

Could you help?

Most of the voluntary car schemes are always on the lookout for new drivers.

How much time you can give is down to you. Even if it's only a couple of hours a month this could still give someone in your community a vital lifeline.

If you enjoy driving, want to help out in your community and have some spare time then what are you waiting for?

Why should you volunteer?

Some people find a simple trip to the shops or getting to a doctor's appointment impossible. A lack of transport can lead to social isolation. It can also make day-to-day life a lot more difficult and expensive.

Volunteering benefits people. It helps them reach vital services.

What are the benefits of being a volunteer?

You get the chance to meet and help others within your community. It is a rewarding way to spend free time knowing you are making a significant difference to the lives of others.

What does a volunteer driver do?

Volunteer drivers come from all walks of life. Some are retired people who want to keep busy. Others are students eager to gain valuable work experience. Others work and want to give a little something back to their community.

Volunteers can donate their time and their wheels to help people:

  • attend medical appointments
  • visit friends or family in hospital
  • go shopping
  • visit friends
  • make connections with buses or trains

It can take up as much or as little of your time as you want. Some volunteers do journeys several days a week, whilst others may work one morning a month or less.

If you enjoy driving, want to help out in your community and have some spare time then what are you waiting for?
