As a Charity we rely heavily on volunteers giving up their free time, however it is also important to us that our volunteers enjoy what they do for their local community and it is flexible to fit in with their lifestyle, holidays etc.
These volunteer roles are extremely satisfying, being part of a friendly team, meeting new people and learning new skills. If you have 2-3 hours a week spare and would like to volunteer, please take a look at our available volunteer opportunities.
Volunteers are needed to assist in delivering our Let’s Chat – Tackling Loneliness with Transport project. We are looking for individuals to befriend visitors using our Let’s Chat hubs for a couple of hours each week. Individuals can choose to work either in our Walsall or Bilston Bus Station Hubs or on our Mobile Hub which visits various locations around the Walsall area. Hubs operate between 10am & 3pm Monday – Friday and volunteers would chat to visitors, serve refreshments, and assist staff in signposting users to other voluntary services available in the area. An ideal voluntary position for anyone who likes to chat!
Volunteers are needed to assist in the delivery of our Door to Door Shopping Services. These routes run every weekday from 10.30am onwards in the Bloxwich, Aldridge & Pheasey areas of the Borough. The work would involve driving a minibus, collecting our older residents from their homes and taking them to their local supermarket where they would have approximately 1 hour to complete their shopping before returning them to their homes. All shopping services have the support of a second person on the vehicle to assist in carrying shopping and helping passengers on and off the vehicle.
Volunteers are constantly needed to assist us in the provision of transport for other voluntary and community groups. Often voluntary organisations do not have the support of a driver from within their group and want to book our vehicle with a driver. To keep costs as affordable as possible for them we rely on the support of our team of volunteer drivers to provide this service. Our volunteers can choose the type of organisations they wish to support (i.e. elderly groups, sports groups, young people etc.) and the distance they are comfortable travelling. Some of our drivers only like driving in the local Walsall area, some however like to go further afield to Llandudno, Bridgnorth, NEC or Derbyshire for example.
Drivers need to be over 25 years of age and have no more than 3 points on their driving licence.
We provide full training to enable drivers to drive a minibus through the MiDAS driver awareness scheme. Our less mobile individuals may require the use of a passenger lift to access the vehicle so full training on the use of all equipment is given as part of our induction. We also pay travel expenses so you are not out of pocket coming to and from the charity and a meal allowance if you are out on a day trip.
