Volunteer Car Service

Proud to be a volunteer for YASWould you like the opportunity to meet new people, keep active and boost your skills and CV or do you know someone who does?  Then joining our Volunteer Car Service could be just the thing!

Our non-emergency Patient Transport Service helps hundreds of people reach their medical appointments every week, supported by our dedicated network of Volunteer Car Service drivers who are an invaluable part of this service.

We have volunteers from all walks of life who have a shared desire to give a little back to the community, giving their time freely to lend a helping hand to those who are more vulnerable. But it’s not just our patients who benefit - becoming a volunteer can offer lots of opportunities for you too.Benefits of being a volunteer

  • have access to a car, with a minimum of four doors
