Step 1 - find your volunteer role

DRIVER

If you are a safe driver, a caring and reliable volunteer, and you have some spare time that you are willing to use to benefit your local community, then please do give us a call and come in for a coffee and chat about what we do and work out whether it is right for you now. 

 

Our drivers drive:

  • A fleet car

  • A fleet minibus, or

  • Their own cars

Training is available for minibus driver and other subjects.

COVID ASSISTANT

We have supported our local residents with a Covid Resonse to the pandemic, from March 2020.  At the height of the initial lockdown, we registered 300 volunteers, but as they returned to work, we continue to supply services to those in need.  Your help towards that suppot would be grateful, in roles like:  

  • Shopping

  • Phone Buddy (Chatterbox)

  • Dog Walking

If you are interested, please give us a call and come in for a coffee and chat about what we do.

Step 3 - prepare to start volunteering

What you could do:

We know our volunteers are keen to start and to make a difference; we love enthusiasm!  Whilst  we are processing your paperwork, you could start looking at some information about your role that will be useful. Some of this is a leaflet to read whilst other bits will be a short video to watch.

 

If you click below, this will give you a list of 2 to 5 minute information activities that will make your volunteering much easier. 

What we will do:

We will be doing the following before you start your volunteering:

  • Safeguard Checks, which are 2x reference checks which are quite quick and painless for your referee, plus if your role requires it, a DBS background check

  • Introducing you to your new Line Manager so they know that you will be starting soon

  • Your Line Manager will contact you to offer you a "buddy" volunteer who can show you the "ropes" if you would like a friendly face to help you settle in

  • You can check with your Line Manager about any further questions you have or if you wan to register on any of our training courses in our Training Centre - they will be free to you!

  • If you want to drive a minibus, the Transport Supervisor will need to check your license, and arrange for your Familiarisation of the vehicles
