Community Transport Volunteer

  • VO92432
  • Home-based volunteering


Description

You'll use your own car (fuel expenses covered) to take clients to health appointments around East Lothian and sometimes into Edinburgh (if that suits). Great way to meet nice people and a great way to help nice people and give back to the community.

A lot of people find it very difficult to get to GP/ nurse appointments, hospital, dentist, physio, and you'll take them there and make a huge positive difference to their lives!

It is very flexible in terms of hours and which areas you cover.
