Volunteer Driver

  • VO75280


Description

Larkhall and District Volunteer Group (LDVG) are looking for volunteer drivers who can help support clients to and from their non-emergency appointments. Volunteers would drive their own car to the patient's home and support to their appointment before assisting them in returning home again. Passengers may be frail, elderly, children or other vulnerable people.

Volunteers will need to have a clean, current driving licence and access to their own vehicle.

We now have 4 minibuses for hire or self-hire, 2 of our new buses can be driven on a standard car licence.

Organisation aims and objectives

Our aim is to help the elderly, housebound, disabled and isolated members of the community. We operate within the Larkhall and surrounding area, providing transport, a morning call line, lunch groups and a weekly support group. At this time, we are involved in a pilot project for a handyperson service.
