Without our Volunteer Drivers and Driver's Mates, many of The Kirkwood's services would simply grind to a halt. Day patient transfers, shop supplies, transfer of medical records, banking and getting the mail on time; all rely on the right transport being available at the right time.

Please take a look at some of the volunteering positions on offer below:

Volunteer Driver Fallback

There are three options for volunteer drivers - transporting Day-patients between their home and the Support & Therapy Centre; driving The Kirkwood Support Vehicle: or supporting the shops by driving one of our retail vans. Volunteer drivers use their own vehicles in the morning and afternoon to transport day-patients who would otherwise find it difficult to access the Support & Therapy Centre. The Kirkwood vehicles are provided for all other driving roles. All drivers must have a clean driving licence and, if using their own vehicle, valid motor insurance. Where appropriate travelling expenses are reimbursed, if requested.

Volunteer Driver's Mates Fallback

As a driver’s mate you don’t need to be able to drive, but you will need to be enthusiastic and physically fit. Driver’s Mates are used on The Kirkwood Support Vehicle and retail vans to assist the driver in carrying out tasks efficiently and effectively, with the minimum of fuss.
