Volunteer drivers and passenger assistants urgently required in the Ellesmere Port area. The service provides meaningful contact between children, families and partners and drives children to places of education and care services. Volunteer drivers need their own vehicle which must have fully comp' insurance with business use. If you haven't currently got business use this can be easily sorted and claimed as an out of pocket expense.
Volunteers are fully vetted and have an enhanced DBS check. You will be part of a team of volunteers that will collect children from various places and take them to school, arranged contacts and appointments during term and holiday periods. This is a very flexible role and journeys are reimbursed at .44p a mile, which is a tax free mileage allowance. Training will be given as well as support and supervision. The out of pocket expenses paid to volunteers will not affect any benefits claimed. You can decide how much time you wish to give to fit in with your routine. Child protection, equality and diversity, Health and Safety and personal safety training will be given. Any additional equipment required for driving children will be provided.
