Volunteering opportunities at Ashfield Voluntary Action

Social car scheme drivers:

Can you spare a few hours a week to provide transport to our car scheme service users who find it difficult to use public transport?  Service users register with us each year and they contact us to book a journey.  Journeys can be for a GP or a hospital appointment, a trip to the hairdressers or going to day center’s.

What are we looking for?

Drivers who hold a full, clean driving licence with business insurance and have their own transport.

Practical considerations:

Fuel costs are reimbursed.  Ideally drivers should be from the Hucknall and Sutton-in-Ashfield areas.

Requirements:

Criminal record check (DBS) and two satisfactory references.

Evidence of insurance, MOT and service.

Skills required:

Good communication (listening and talking), patience, organising, time-management.

Availability:

The car scheme runs 7 days a week including evenings.
