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 opportunities

Our volunteer drivers provide an essential service transporting people to a medical appointment (e.g. hospital, GP, dental, opticians, vaccination) or social appointment (e.g. supermarket, lunch group; visit family/friends; hairdressers).
