Volunteer Driver

Friends and Places Together

We run lots of activities for our young people, however, they struggle getting to and from our fun events. If you have some spare time and would love to help drive them about, that would be so great!

About this opportunity from Friends and Places Together

As a charity that supports young people with additional needs, our young people do not always have access to transport and can’t travel independently on public transport. We are looking for a driver with their own car (a 7 seater would be desirable but not required). Our current options of drivers are very limited at this moment and any help would be greatly appreciated.

As a volunteer you will gain valuable experience of working with young people and those with additional needs. If you want to get into the area of Health and Social Care this could act as a great springboard into the workforce and would show you have ample experience. Although never guaranteed, we aspire to offer as much paid work to our volunteers after being with us for a committed period of time. We also cover any expenses incurred.

We need people who are enthusiastic and willing to help others for a great cause. We need those who can bring excitement and creativity to the role or simply have a passion for health and social care work.
As we grow as an organisation we need as many people as possible to help vulnerable people in the community.
