Volunteer Delivery Teams

  • VO74988


Description

Our Volunteer Delivery Drivers and Helpers are a vital part of our team ensuring essential grocery supplies are provided to older people in Renfrewshire. The Delivery Teams are responsible for transporting groceries from the supermarket to our members. They will load the Food Train vans ensuring the most efficient delivery order. On arrival at the member’s home the Delivery Team unload the groceries, putting goods away if requested. They are then responsible for ensuring the financial transactions are completed accurately. Deliveries usually begin at 9:30am and are complete by 2:30pm

Organisation aims and objectives

Our aim is to support older people to live independently at home. Our preventative services address the difficulty older people face getting their weekly grocery shopping, doing jobs around the house and the growing isolation that comes with failing health. We also aim to provide a wide range of supported volunteering opportunities for people of all ages and ability and these include shopper, driver, delivery assistant and office assistant.
