Volunteer Driver – Care

  • Location: Bury, Oldham & Rochdale (and surrounding areas)

Where will I be based?

This is an exciting opportunity for a confident driver, who’ll start off from Grace’s Place (Bury) and collect our children and their families all over Bury, Oldham and Rochdale.

Who will show me what to do?

A Care Team Member will show you the ropes, ensuring we get the most out of your valuable time.

What will I be doing?

Using the hospice vehicles, you will transport our children and families to and from the hospice, so they can reap the full benefits of our Care Team, Support Groups and facilities. The hospice vehicles are wheel chair friendly (full training will be provided).

How many hours will I volunteer?

We’re looking to cover various shifts, however as much time as you can donate would be great!

Do I need any skills/experience?

For this role you will need;
