Help support our minibus driver

Transport / Driving volunteers needed for Thrive in RG7

We need volunteers to support our minibus driver when collecting and taking home our clients from various locations across North Hampshire.

The tasks include:

  • Supervising clients boarding and disembarking the bus (no lifting required)
  • ensuring seat belts worn by all passengers
  • ensuring baggage is secured before journeys commence
  • general supervision of clients whilst travelling
  • becoming familiar with routes to assist the driver
  • assisting the driver and passengers in the event of an emergency

Please note that this is not a driving role. The role will be shared between a pool of volunteers.
