Volunteer drivers needed

Posted 16/09/2016 10:43:12

Please consider driving for Waverley

Description: Would you like the opportunity to brighten an elderly person's day? You can do so by volunteering to be a driver of a specially adapted minibus that transports them to and from Kenilworth Community Care.  

 
Tasks: As a volunteer driver, you would drive a local route starting at 9:00 a.m. and collect approximately 12 elderly people from their homes and take them to Kenilworth Community Care. The route takes around 2 hours and an employee of Kenilworth Community Care will always accompany you. In addition to driving, you will help open the door of the van and help with the lift equipment. You will also drive the afternoon route to return the individuals to their homes starting at 3:00 p.m.
 
Training & Support: All volunteer drivers are given training on the vehicle. You will be shown how everything on the minibus operates to ensure the safety and comfort of the passengers. You will be given a minor test including an informal driving assessment.If desired, you may complete a first-aid training.
 

Time Commitment: It is expected that a volunteer driver will drive both the day's morning and afternoon drives, although the time between the two drives is free. It is also expected that a driver will commit to between one day a week and one day a month.

 
Skills Needed: A clean UK licence is required. You will need to be able to push a wheelchair and be able to get it into and out of the van. A helpful, friendly and cheerful disposition is also needed.
