Our volunteers are amongst the most dedicated and inspiring group of people we have had the pleasure to have met. Lending their skills, energy and their zeal to create a better world, our volunteers make a real difference to hundreds of people every single day. We are very proud of our drivers who adhere to the high standards of the Community Transport Driver Safety Framework. All of our drivers receive mentored training, driving assessments, police checks, driver record checks and commercial-grade driver medical checks.
Volunteering to drive with us is so much more rewarding than taking someone from point A to point B. When you work with us, you are providing a friendly link to the world for our passengers and your impact upon their lives cannot be understated. Here are just a fraction of the comments our passengers have given us:
‘We are always grateful for the help we have received from this transport system over a long period of time. The drivers are kind and helpful. We don’t know what we would do without it really due to all our medical needs. Many, many thanks’.
‘I just want to say how grateful I am of the service and the way we are picked up and delivered home and to where we are going. I don’t know what I would have done without it, now I’ve got older and not so mobile, one can’t ask neighbours too much, and family is not always around. Also the drivers are all great, it’s a pleasure to go with them.’
‘To all those at Community Transport who gave me such wonderful service during recovery from my total hip replacement, a very big thank you. I very much appreciate the service that you provide and I wish you one and all the very best. Many thanks.’
‘I am writing this letter to tell you how much I am enjoying and appreciating the outings with community services and Right at Home. The drivers and the ladies are so kind and helpful and the lunches have all been great.”
