VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITY OF THE MONTH – OCTOBER

Could you become a volunteer for our Dial A Ride scheme?

Volunteer drivers use their own cars or one of our vehicles to transport older passengers in Charnwood to their health or social appointments, helping to maintain their independence if they are unable to use public transport or live in isolated areas. Volunteer drivers provide passengers with a safe, comfortable journey and a reassuring and friendly face.

Volunteer for just a few hours or a whole day or more – it’s up to you. Mileage is reimbursed at 45p per mile and a new DBS Certificate is required.
