Volunteer Drivers Needed!

What would I be doing as a volunteer driver?

A volunteer driver will support a number of our community group members by collecting grocery shopping and dropping it off at their home. You may be required to pick up a shopping list from them or to collect an online order from a supermarket. 

What impact would I have?

Going to a supermarket seems really simple, but this could really make a difference to an older person who can no longer leave the house. When collecting the shopping list or dropping the groceries off, you could have a quick conversation at the doorstep (if you stand at least two metres away) or through an open window.

It could be that you’re the only person they speak to that day, or even that week. Our volunteer drivers have become increasingly important during the Covid-19 outbreak as people need to stay indoors.

We’re looking for people who have the following skills and qualities:

  • A clean driving licence and a good driving safety awareness
  • Good communication skills
  • Mindful of infection control and good hygiene at all times
  • An understanding of the needs of older people
  • Reliable and trustworthy
  • Flexible and punctual
  • Enjoy working with older people.

Why volunteer for MHA?

If you are passionate about caring for older people, MHA is the place for you. We are a national charity inspiring the best care at every stage of later life. It is our mission to enable people to live later life well and you could help us achieve this. Amid the coronavirus outbreak, this is more important than ever and we need help in order to keep up the levels of excellent care that we provide.

Our volunteers are making a difference every day

Do you want to give something back to your local community at this difficult time? One of our volunteers says: “I decided that I would like to volunteer and give something back to the community. I love listening to their stories, I always feel part of their family…and always look forward to my weekly visit.”
