Volunteer Driver Hart and Rushmoor Young Carers

Hart and Rushmoor Young Carers provide respite sessions at youth clubs in Fleet and Farnborough during term-time, giving young people time-out from their caring responsibilities for an adult or sibling in their family. As many families find it difficult to provide transport for their children to attend these clubs, we rely on volunteers to help out by providing transport to and from club sessions.

We are looking for volunteer drivers who have the following availability during term-time and would be willing to cover one or more journeys.

Monday afternoons/evenings:

Venue: The Point Youth Centre, Harlington Way, Fleet, GU51 4PB

Senior Club Session (School/College Years, 9, 10, 11, 12): runs from 19.30-21.00, so drivers will be picking young people up earliest 19.00 (Pick up/drop off in Yateley, Aldershot, Fleet, Odiham or Farnborough and dropping them back at 21.00.
