Driver Volunteer - Perth

  • VO94449


This role will let you meet new people and support them to get out and about. You'll gain knowledge about your local community and can volunteer in your own time.
As a volunteer driver you might take an individual to a community club, a regular appointment, respond to ad-hoc requests for transport or take someone home after a stay in hospital. Drivers use their own vehicles to provide a friendly journey and support people to and from their home and destination. Your role will involve elements of lone working and building a relationship with those you transport.
You will receive relevant training for your role and will be welcomed and supported by a member of the Perth & Kinross Royal Voluntary Service team.

Organisation aims and objectives

We’re here to help people keep leading independent, healthy and happy lives, by offering a helping hand where it’s needed. Our volunteers offer practical support by taking care of the things the people we serve are less able to do for themselves, like shopping or getting to and from social activities. Volunteers also provide social and emotional support, just by being there in person or on the phone.











Experience required: No experience necessary but flexibility, a caring attitude, willing to help others, reliability and commitment are all key elements of what we look for in our valued volunteers. For driving a full, clean driver’s licence is required.
Travel details: This role is for driving from Perth to areas within Perth & Kinross and potentially Ninewells Hospital in Dundee
