Travel for All Volunteers

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to be part of an exciting project called Travel for All, which is currently running across Hampshire. Volunteers will support residents aged 65+ to make the most of the transport options available in their area, reducing the risk of social isolation and loneliness.

Travel for all is supported by Hampshire County Council and South Western Railway. Project aims include:

  • Enabling older adults to identify relevant public transport options and to confidently use them independently
  • Empowering vulnerable adults to re-engage with their local community
  • Reducing feelings of social isolation and loneliness and improve wellbeing

To successfully carry out this exciting and innovative project, we need local people at the heart of it as volunteers. We want volunteers to help:

  • Support older residents to identify relevant public transport options
  • Raise the profile of local shops and town centres to boost a sense of local community
  • Gather useful feedback from their engagement to help us identify areas for greater service promotion/development and any additional barriers preventing individuals from connecting with their communities¬†

Skills

Training and ongoing support will be provided to volunteers and the project will run to March 2023. However a commitment to volunteering until then is not needed. 

Please note: volunteers will need to pass an Enhanced DBS check. Volunteers will also require a full UK driving license
