Transport Assistants/Drivers

  • VO87677


Description

North East Sensory Services (NESS) requires volunteer Drivers/Transport Assistants to help elderly people, with hearing or sight loss, access social groups and activities in Moray.

Groups meet throughout the week and volunteers would be required to either drive the organisation’s car or use their own vehicle, with all expenses covered.

At NESS we are not just looking for people to drive cars – we are looking for kind, happy, friendly people, willing to help a blind or deaf person in and out of a car.

Volunteers can give a few hours per week (or more if they can manage) to collect service users and then return them home a few hours later.

If you can help, please contact Heather Roy heather.roy@nesensoryservices.org
