How can you help - you decide
Our Transport Section Leader, Colin Jackson, is moving away from the area at the end of October and we will be looking for someone to take over this role. If anyone would be interested in finding out more about this position please telephone Mary Forrest on 01628 626579 or Colin on 07767072425 as soon as possible.
Drivers - as a volunteer driver you could typically be asked to take a client to a local hospital, to their GP or to a similar type of medical appointment. Such trips are usually on a deliver and wait basis where you would wait at the location until the client had finished when you would take them home. For clients with longer appointments you may decide to drop off and return at alter time if more convenient.
Befriending - if you enjoy a chat we have lonely clients that would love a visit on a regular basis.
Shopping - we have a number of commitments for volunteers able to help escorting the client around the shops or doing the shopping for them.
Duty Officer - if you would like to volunteer but did not want to drive or visit, consider this role where you
receive telephone requests from clients in your own home and match to a suitable volunteer from a database provided. A portable office consisting of a laptop and mobile phone to receive calls are used and full training is given.
