Driver (East Fife)

  • VO89331
  • Home-based volunteering


Description

Do something amazing, volunteer today. RVS urgently need more volunteers in the East of Fife.
Would you like to help people in your local community? If you have a few hours to spare, then they would like to hear from you. Their volunteers share time because it is enjoyable and rewarding. You will be fully trained, and all expenses reimbursed.
Volunteering with the Royal Voluntary Service won't just help transform the lives of older people, it will change your life too. A couple of hours volunteering will make you feel great. You will be amazed what effect one conversation, one laugh from someone who has spent days alone or a heartfelt 'thank you' can have.
Volunteering gets you out and about. As a volunteer you won't be stuck doing the same thing and you certainly won't be stuck indoors. RVS volunteers ensure that their clients are transported safely to and from various medical and personal appointments throughout Fife and sometimes beyond.

Organisation aims and objectives

The RVS will transport and assist older people, who are unable to use public transport, to attend various private appointments. Our volunteers will use their own cars and receive a mileage allowance to cover all expenses. We will transport our clients to wherever they need to go assuming we have a volunteer willing to do so.
