Cheshire Volunteer Car Scheme:
This service is provided for people who are unable to access conventional public transport due to mobility issues, physical disabilities or mental health challenges. The scheme’s main aim is to alleviate isolation and to provide opportunities for those who are often put at a disadvantage due to lack of accessible transport. As a volunteer driver in this car scheme, using your own vehicle, you’ll give up some of your time to help transport people who are not able to access public transport. For more information on this volunteering opportunity please contact us.
As a volunteer with Cheshire CDT you’ll be provided with a direct contact for your volunteer role as well as our dedicated Volunteer Co-ordinator. We’ll provide you with all the of necessary training appropriate for your volunteer role and reimburse any out of pocket expenses incurred as part of your volunteering activities.
