Summary

Our drivers help older and vulnerable people, or those without access to transport, to get to medical and social appointments. We're looking for new drivers!

Detailed description

We are always looking for new Volunteer Drivers throughout the North Cotswolds and in Cirencester.


This is one of our fastest growing services and a priority area for us.


If you are a confident, safe driver and your vehicle is insured, taxed and has an MOT, plus you are happy to take passengers on journeys for medical and social appointments, such as weekly shopping, then we would love to hear from you.


You will be paid a mileage allowance - 50p per mile driven - plus any additional payments for long wait times.


Flexible role, hours and journeys to suit you.


Ready to volunteer? Contact us now!


Cotswold Friends volunteer driver, Carolyn, says:


“What I enjoy about volunteering for the charity is the chance to meet other people in the locality and discovering local communities that are new to me.


“The role is flexible, which is good for me, as I enjoy helping people, but I can’t commit to being part of a team.”
