  • About the Volunteer Role

    Make a real difference to local people by joining our team of caring Volunteer Car Drivers to help local people overcome their transport barriers. Many people in Kirklees are isolated and housebound due to a gap in suitable transport provision, now more than ever with Covid-19, this sometimes leads to loneliness and poor mental and physical health. Our team of own-car drivers help people get to essential appointments at present such as doctors appointments, hospital appointments and vaccinations. When restrictions are lifted they also help with visiting friends & family, shops, hair salons, sporting and social groups - greatly improving quality of life for that individual.

    The driver requires their own car and claim 40p per mile for their expenses.

Covid-Safe Volunteering

If you are volunteering in lockdown, please make sure that you are staying safe and are up-to-date with the current rules and guidance.

If possible you should be staying at home and should volunteer from home. If your volunteering is essential and has to be done outside of the home (for e.g. if you are volunteering in a foodbank or are supporting people in your community) please make sure that you are following the guidelines to stay safe.
