Detailed description

Do you enjoy the freedom of driving, and getting out and about? Would you like to make a real difference to someone's life? Being a volunteer driver gives you the opportunity to do that, as you would be helping the people we support get to and from the activities and appointments that are important to them.


Activities will include: • Either using your own car or driving the vehicle of someone we support (this can be discussed) • Agreeing arrangements with local Discovery colleagues and the people we support as suitable • Driving one or more passengers around the local area - this may involve both a pick-up and drop-off, or sometimes just a drop-off only • Ensuring passengers are safely secured in the car • Planning driving routes or using Google maps app. • Chatting and being friendly


If interested, please get in touch!


What you can expect from Discovery: * An organisation that values volunteers’ individual differences, interests and strengths * A welcoming, supportive and positive volunteering atmosphere * Comprehensive support from professional, friendly and trained Discovery staff * A comprehensive and personal induction to volunteering and your role * Agreed travel expenses reimbursed * An opportunity to gain real experience in the social care sector.


A regular commitment would be appreciated
