This role requires a volunteer with a Driver's Licence (we will supply the vehicle) to drive a small group of clients (between 1 and 5) to community activities such as for example - fitness groups, walking groups, arts or crafts groups, dog walking etc. and accompany them throughout the activity before dropping them back at our premises in South Dunedin. Any costs to take part in the activities will be paid for by Able organization.
We will have a one to one meeting with the volunteer to explain a little about our organization and what we do as well as about the volunteer position.
We provide orientation and would accompany the volunteer for the first two or three times to the activity or until they feel comfortable doing it alone. We also accompany them on an initial drive of the car so they feel comfortable driving our vehicle. We offer support and encouragement by being readily available to answer questions or listen to any concerns they may have. We reimburse for the cost of any activity that the volunteer attends.
Volunteers must have a current Driver’s licence and ‘people skills’
These activities take place at different times and days between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm from Monday to Friday.
The first step is to express your interest by filling out the form below. We will then put you in touch directly with the organisation for more information on the role and how to proceed.
