Description

Community Compass offer creative new ways for older people to stay social, get active and have fun. We currently have Compass Clubs in Malpas Cheshire and Winsford, with a range of community based activities to suit different tastes & ages.

We are looking for volunteer drivers.

Our volunteer drivers would be picking up 3/4 members at approximately 10am on a Saturday once a month. All members will be within a 7 mile radius of our club in Winsford Town. Our volunteer would be welcome to stay for the day and enjoy a free two course home cooked meal, along with activities our members enjoy throughout the day. We would also ask if volunteers would be available to take members home at 3pm. If our volunteer does not wish to stay for the day that is not a problem. Both journeys or one way would be much appreciated. Some of our members may need a hand checking they have keys etc and have secured their home. Travel expenses will be reimbursed.

Our volunteers would need to be empathetic to the needs of people who have little confidence when leaving their home. The members may need to bring walking aids,. Some of our members may have a physical disability or need reassurance. We would always thoroughly brief a volunteer before picking anybody up. It would be our hope that a volunteer will be buddied up with the same people each time to enable the volunteer to get to know the member and visa versa.

Only registered members can apply for opportunities.
