Mobility Aid Volunteer Driver

  • VO66290


Description

This is a very rewarding role providing much-needed support for people who are accessing our service. The main element of the role is to deliver or collect wheelchairs to/from people’s homes supporting them to maintain their independence, or you could choose to support members of the public from varying locations around the hub area (e.g. often using partner supermarket car parks) to enable them to obtain a wheelchair or other mobility aids equipment. You could also be driving between hub and spoke locations to transfer stock. This is the ideal role for someone who enjoys meeting people, can show compassion and empathy and who likes driving. It will involve driving a Red Cross or hire vehicle.

We value the energy and enthusiasm that young people bring to this role. The minimum age you can volunteer for the Red Cross is fifteen years old, however for this role and due to lone working and driving requirement you must be at least twenty-one years old. Other roles may be available for people aged under 18. Please check other vacancies.
