SummaryMany young people have to travel to get to their host's home for the evening. This can be a daunting experience, so we rely on volunteers to help us.
WHAT DRIVING INVOLVES
Volunteer drivers meet guests at a pre-arranged place, drive them to their host’s home, make introductions and call the project to confirm that the guest has arrived safely.
You will be the first point of contact for a guest so you need to be reliable, non-judgemental and good listener who is willing to be a reassuring presence. All our training will prepare you for taking on this role.
The time commitment is flexible and as a volunteer driver you can choose how often you are available for driving. However, drivers are mainly needed on weekdays between 4 and 6 p.m. Our drivers are able to make Nightstop fit around their normal lives.
We provide comprehensive training with information about youth homelessness, safeguarding rules and tips to help you when meeting and travelling with the guest.
We also run DBS checks for all Drivers.
