Teviot Wheels

Charity registered in Scotland SC037646

Teviot Wheels is a community transport service for people with mobility difficulties living in the Roxburgh area of the Scottish Borders and community groups in this area. We have three wheelchair-accessible vehicles based locally in Hawick, Jedburgh and Kelso and are part of The Bridge Community Transport Initiative.

Current opportunity

We need local volunteer drivers for our vehicles, to help the elderly and disabled get out and about. It might be a shopping trip, visit to family and friends, outings, transport to clubs/meetings, hospital visits and any other long or short journeys as required. We give all our drivers MiDAS (Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme) training which is recognised throughout the UK as the standard course for volunteer drivers involved in community transport. Training includes loading and strapping in of wheelchairs. Travel expenses are paid at 40p per mile.
