Volunteer Drivers

Once a month, normally on a Sunday afternoon, each older guest is collected from their home by a Volunteer Driver, and taken to a Volunteer Host’s home, where they join a small group for refreshments, talk and companionship. The group is warmly welcomed by a different host each month, but the charity’s drivers and older guests remain the same. This means that over the months and years, acquaintances turn into friends and loneliness is replaced by companionship.

We are looking for Volunteer Drivers in the Fleet area to collect and accompany the older person to the social gathering once a month. The monthly gathering will normally take place at another volunteer’s home, and part of your role will be to liaise with other volunteers and older guests to finalise pick-up arrangements.
