Volunteer drivers

Our Young Carers Team uses volunteer drivers to help children and young people get to and from the clubs, groups and activities we organise. Often parents of young carers find it difficult to transport them, our volunteer drivers can offer a brief respite and access to vital support for our young carers.

All volunteer drivers will be DBS checked and we will require information about your vehicle, including MOT and service history, as well as asking for a brief medical history and driving licence record.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer driver or would like more information please contact Dan Wilkinson (Volunteer Co-ordinator) on 01273 746 222 or email volunteer@thecarerscentre.org.

Carers Reablement Project

Do you have a skill that you can share with a carer? This project supports carers, assisted by volunteers, to achieve positive change within their lives through a goals approach to reach clear outcomes, which will improve the health and wellbeing of the carers.

We match your experience and knowledge with the needs of a carer – for example they may want to start going to a gym, be able to use a computer, attend a book group, or learn to cook.

As a volunteer you can decide how much time you can commit, and when you will be available to volunteer. You will receive one to one support, guidance and training. Travel expenses and any out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.

If you are interested in helping with the Carers Reablement Service or would like more information please contact Dan Wilkinson on 01273 746 222 or email volunteer@thecarerscentre.org.
