Need own 4 door car
If you enjoy driving and meeting new people then this could be the role for you!
As a volunteer driver you will use your own 4 door car to provide transport for eligible clients to and from non-emergency hospital, social care and other appointments at different locations.
Volunteer driving is a great opportunity to help others, meet new people and provide a vital lifeline in your community.
Your mileage expenses will be reimbursed at up to 50p per mile.
Transporting Somerset provides crucial transport for eligible non-emergency NHS patients and social care users enabling them to get to various locations across the county and further afield.
You will be supported by a Transport Officer from the Transporting Somerset team
Last year our amazing volunteer drivers collectively travelled over a million miles, carrying out 88,000 journeys. Each of these journeys connected people to services that they would otherwise miss out on.
Some volunteer drivers also provide school or college transport.
You will need to notify your car insurance provider that you are a volunteer driver and as such your annual mileage may increase.
