Volunteering for us is fun, can develop your confidence and skills, or even improve your chance of getting or progressing a job!
Volunteer Car Drivers – provide transport for people using your own car, and you will be paid fuel expenses at 45p per mile. You will also collect the cash fare and offer a receipt to the passenger (this may be declined if not required).
Cumbria County Council provides insurance against loss of no claims bonus and excess payments.
Volunteer Co-ordinators – organise transport, recruit drivers and publicise the scheme in their local area. All expenses are re-imbursed.
Volunteer Minibus Drivers – can take out not-for-profit groups, organisations and charities that for day hires in a 16 seater accessible minibus. Can also join a rota on Community Wheels trips (please make contact for locations). Midas training given.
We look forward to hearing form you for an informal chat.
