About the Opportunity
VAs a volunteer driver, you will drive service users to and from their homes to a variety of appointments including those at hospitals, day centres, dentists and classes.

Drives usually take place Mon - Fri. but there is an occasional need for evening and weekend drives. Volunteers are reimbursed mileage expenses at 40p per mile.

Volunteer Now's driving scheme is funded by Belfast Health and Social Care Trust and provides transport for socially isolated, vulnerable older people across Belfast and who lack support, or whose relatives or friends do not have the means to help them. Our service users are referred by social workers or other health professionals within the Belfast Health & Social Care Trust.

What are the requirements to be a driver?
• Time—2 or 3 hours per week
• A reliable and appropriate car.
• A valid driving licence, an up-to-date MOT certificate (if applicable) and appropriate insurance cover. Please note there is not normally a charge for adding a volunteer driver role to your existing cover.
• To be friendly and reliable
• We offer the reimbursement of out of pocket expenses and ongoing support.

You will not be on your own, you will have support & training and will be part of a great group of volunteers.
