At Community Action Dacorum we have many opportunities for individuals to volunteer and help make a difference to people’s lives and improve their own health and wellbeing. By being a volunteer driver for our Community Car Scheme you will be making a difference to people’s lives by providing transport for the less able taking them to health and social appointments.

To become a volunteer driver you need to:

  • Live in Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted, Tring or one of the surrounding villages in Dacorum
  • Own your own car
  • Can spare a few hours during the day
  • Enjoy driving and meeting people
  • Hold a full UK driving licence for a minimum of 2 years
  • Be physically fit to be able to lift walking aids
  • Have a DBS check

 Benefits of volunteering as a Community Car driver:

  • It is very rewarding. Our volunteers report that they enjoy meeting the clients who are all very appreciative of the service
  • It is flexible. You don’t have to commit to a set day or time you can choose what day of the week, how long and how frequently. We don’t mind you saying no to a job, because we value the times that you do say yes!
  • You receive reimbursement for your mileage expenses at £0.45 per mile
  • No extra insurance is required
