Share this role

The Living Well Service offers a range of support on different days. Before a patient attends,  a holistic assessment is completed, to find out which session will suit the patient best.

We are looking for confident Volunteer Drivers, who will be using their own car to transport patients from and to home. Sessions start at 10.30am and finish at 1pm on Tuesdays,  Thursdays or Fridays.

Patients are assessed for suitability by a member of staff before being allocated a volunteer Driver.

Main responsibilities

  • Call the patient regarding their journey beforehand, to confirm they still wish to attend.
  • Provide a listening ear, if the patient does wish to talk during the journey, not all patients do.
  • Maintain your Drivers paperwork (car insurance, driving licence check) we will ask you for this  annually.
  • On occasion you may also be asked to drive people who are attending bereavement support, or visiting a loved one on our in-patient unit.

Please apply online.  If you have any questions please contact us on volunteer@arhc.org.uk, 01223 675872 Monday-Friday 9-5pm.

We want to ensure that our process and volunteering experience is as accessible as possible so please do let us know if we can support you in any way.
