Our shops rely on our volunteers to keep them running successfully. A key role is that of our volunteer drivers. Our drivers support us by delivering and collecting items across their local area, to both customers and other shops.

We'll need to check your driving licence before you can start for things like penalty points and which vehicles you are allowed to drive.

If you have a few hours a week you can spare on a regular basis and enjoy being out and about, meeting new people, keeping active and want to help then please get in touch.

Health and Safety Statement

We take an individual approach to ensuring your safety.

We may ask you to complete a simple risk assessment. We will also have a conversation with you to discuss any restrictions that may still be in place in your region and identify any adjustments you may need.
