Experienced drivers needed with or without their own transport

 

We're always on the look out for volunteer drivers to help less mobile people get to hospitals, medical appointments, essential shopping trips and to help them out of isolation.  If you have a friendly disposition, are a reliable person who enjoys driving, we would love to hear from you. 

 

We're looking for volunteer drivers in South Staffordshire from Acton Trussell to as far south as Kinver.

Want to become a driver but worried about insurance?

 

Association of British Insurers says 60 brands have signed up.

 

Motor insurers have pledged not to charge extra premiums for volunteers who want to use their cars to help their local communities.

 

Fifty-four insurance brands, representing 85 per cent of the motor insurance market, have signed up to the commitment, according to the Association of British Insurers. You can find out more by clicking here...

 

Volunteers currently have to tell insurers about their volunteer driving because some companies do not accept it as "social driving" and charge more.

 

This was one of the concerns highlighted in Unshackling Good Neighbours, the recent report by Lord Hodgson which was set up to investigate ways of preventing bureaucracy from stifling charities.

 

The Association of British Insurers said in a statement: "Insurers will make all the necessary information publicly available so that volunteers can be fully covered to take part in community activities".

 

Justin Davis Smith, chief executive of Volunteering England, said: "This is a great step forward in helping communities meet their own transport needs. The cost of insurance can be a real barrier for volunteer drivers, so I’m delighted that the industry has made a clear commitment to support them."
