What is a Volunteer driver?

We need volunteer drivers for a car scheme, we want to win the fight against loneliness & isolation in Cornwall. The number of hours required would be flexible and mileage will be paid to all volunteers. 

We arrange door-to-door transport for people who have difficulty accessing other forms of public transport. We specialise in non-emergency healthcare appointments, trips to the library, memory caf├ęs, meeting friends for lunch and shopping excursions.

Our transport services perform an invaluable role in the community; providing individuals, organisations & groups an opportunity to find out what transport is available, identify the cost and to book & co-ordinate the service with ease.

Our Volunteer Drivers need a clean driving licence, MOT, Insurance & Tax; Midas Training is given and a DBS check is required for all new applicants.

What you will get out of it

  • It's a great way to make a real difference to someone's life
  • You'll be giving something to your community
  • You get to be part of Age UK Cornwall's volunteer team
  • You are providing a safe, effective, co-ordinated service for people who need it the most
  • All your mileage expenses will be paid
