Community Car Service
Community Action:MK has been invited by Milton Keynes Council to set up and run a pilot Community Car Service project in Milton Keynes, with support from South Northants Volunteer Bureau and Milton Keynes Council from April 2015. The aim of the Community Action:MK’s Community Car Service is to provide safe and reliable transportation for elderly, disabled and vulnerable adults of the community who struggle to use or have limited/ no access to Public transport, in order to help them access a range of medical services or social care visits.
Volunteer Drivers Wanted!
Do you have some free time?
Are you a car owner and like driving?
Would you like to help people in your local area by becoming a volunteer car driver?
We are looking for people willing to give their time to transport the elderly and disabled to a range of medical appointments and social care activities. These are generally in Milton Keynes and local area, but can occasionally be to Bedford, Northampton, Aylesbury, and Oxford.
You do not have to travel to areas you are not familiar with and we only ask you to volunteer as and when you are available and willing; this can be anything from a few hours a week to all week depending on your preferences and availability. You will need your own car, however, all mileage costs are reimbursed at the current HMRC rate.
You will need to inform your insurance company that you are volunteering and insurance companies do not impose a financial penalty for this.
For more information please don’t hesitate to get in touch with either Tracy Whitmore or Laura Jeffery on 01908 670309 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
