RVS: Royal Voluntary Service (Grampian Services)

Charity registered in Scotland SC038924

Every day Royal Voluntary Service helps thousands of older people to live the life they want. We provide practical services in homes, in hospitals and in communities all across the country so people can be independent and active. Royal Voluntary Service is one of the largest voluntary organisations and much of our work is supporting older people. We provide practical solutions to the everyday problems of loneliness and isolation.

Current opportunity

The Royal Voluntary Service is working in partnership with NHS Grampian and the 3 Health and Social Care Partnerships in Grampian to recruit additional volunteer drivers to support the COVID-19 vaccination programme. We are seeking drivers able to drive their own vehicle, who live throughout the Grampian area, but we particularly need drivers living in or near Buckie, Turriff, Fraserburgh, Peterhead, Banchory, Insch, Speyside, and Elgin Area. Volunteer Drivers will help people attend their COVID-19 vaccination appointment. Vaccination is our best way out of the pandemic, it is so important that everyone can attend their vaccination when they receive their appointment notification. Volunteers have made a massive contribution to support people to stay safe and well during the pandemic, they have been a lifeline for many in our communities. Full training, risk assessment and reimbursement of any costs is provided.
