Due to Covid-19 many of the drivers have had to stop volunteering. As clients start to return they will seek reliable and friendly drivers required for the North Tandridge Voluntary Car Scheme to help take the elderly or/and infirm to medical appointments and other vital trips predominantly within Tandridge
The office email drivers the jobs between 8.30am and 5.00pm to ask your availability and allocate drivers to trips. You can be available as and when or on specific days. They particularity seek volunteer drivers for the Oxted and Hurst Green area.
You will be reimbursed 45p per mile from home to destination and back so you should not be out of pocket.
What skills do I need?
Someone with a clean driving licence, who owns their own car which is elderly accessible.
Also needs to be able to amuse themselves while waiting for clients.
Some hospital visits may be outside the clients area.
Some clients may need physical help, e.g. wheelchair users.
