Volunteer Driver - Petersfield

Brendoncare aims to improve the quality of life for older people, and our growing local network of social/activity Clubs are vital to combating loneliness and social isolation within local communities.  They enable our members to develop relationship networks and each Club aims to respond to the interests, needs, aspirations and choices of each individual.

Our Volunteer Drivers are integral to our Clubs team as many of our members would be unable to attend without the transport offered.   And it’s not just about the driving; friendships are formed, fun and laughter experienced on the journeys to and from the Clubs.  We’re currently looking for more people to get involved at our Club in Petersfield.

Using your own car, you will offer door to door transport to individuals or small groups of Club members.
