Volunteer As A Car Driver

As a Volunteer Driver you will be part of a team of volunteers transporting patients to and from the Vitality Centre at the hospice using your own vehicle.

Key Tasks

To ensure that your vehicle is roadworthy

  • It is important that you maintain regular checks on your vehicle and that before each journey a visual check is made on tyres, lights etc. 

To collect Vitality Centre patients from their homes

  • The Transport Co-ordinator will contact drivers each week to arrange pick ups and returns. The weekly rota will then be kept in the Vitality Centre. The Transport Co-ordinator will advise of any special instructions.

To return patients from Vitality Centre to their homes

  • The Transport Co-ordinator will advise drivers of collection times. Drivers should report to the Vitality Centre Team Leader at collection time.

To reassure patients about their experience at the Hospice

  • Patients may be apprehensive about attending the Vitality Centre, particularly those who are attending for the first time. A friendly reassuring manner will help to put them at their ease.

Support and Supervision

  • Reports to the Vitality Centre Team Leaders and the Voluntary Services Manager.
