Description

Volunteer Drivers are needed to support our more isolated service users to attend our various social groups within the centre as well as some external appointments.
We are looking for a reliable, friendly and approachable volunteer who is willing to support service users using their own vehicle.
Experience of sign language and/or sighted guide would be useful, although training will be given.
