Age Concern Heathfield and District Volunteers Needed

Monday 21st January 2019 11:48am

Age Concern Heathfield and District urgently require people to join their team of volunteers providing help with their transport services in a variety of roles:

 

Administrator for the Medical Car Services - this offers transport to the elderly to attend medical appointments. This voluntary role involves talking to clients on the phone, liaising with the team of volunteer drivers and logging information on an electronic diary system.

 

Administrator for Minibus Services - update and send out passenger lists to the drivers,  organise the  monthly rota of bus runs and allocate drivers for each journey and take phone and email bookings and enquiries about the use of the buses.

 

Medical car drivers - car owners who are happy to offer transport to elderly people to attend medical appointments.  All expenses are reimbursed.

 

Minibus drivers and escorts - drivers who are under the age of 75 and have a D1 category on their licence and escorts who are happy to assist with passenger safety.  Full training will be given.

 

As we are all volunteers we are always grateful of extra pairs of hands to help and all of the posts can be shared to make them more manageable. Of course cover is also required when people are away on holiday or off ill.

 

If you can spare a few hours a week, month or just on an ad-hoc basis please contact:
