Minibus drivers

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 helper you will be making a difference to people’s lives by providing opportunities for them to feel less isolated and lonely.

Together with the minibus driver you will be providing support to individuals in helping them to get on/off a minibus, ensuring everyone is kept safe and providing a steadying hand to individuals if needed on a trip.

To become a volunteer helper you need to:

  • To be a caring individual who likes helping and chatting to others
  • Be prepared to do some light lifting eg lifting walking aids
  • Can spare a few hours during the day

Benefits of volunteering as a helper:

  • 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
  • Enjoyment and joy
