Drivers

  • VO47170


Description

As a volunteer driver your role will be to either pick up, drop off, or undertake a return journey, with the children and young people we work with. The children and young people live throughout North East Fife. This service is vital to the children who attend our services as a means of support and time to relax and have fun. The children and young people look forward to attending their activities such as 1:1 befriending or youth groups. These activities benefit the children and young people's social and emotional development. As a driver you will contribute to their overall experience by interacting with the children and meeting their families. All drivers must be over 21, have to complete an application form, undergo an enhanced PVG check, provide 2 referees and undertake training. Drivers will also have to provide evidence of car insurance, MOT, tax, servicing history and driving licence.
