Our volunteer drivers provide service users with lifts to hospital or GP appointments so that they can access vital medical care and treatment. They also help service users get to supermarkets and some other welfare appointments, as well as collecting and delivering prescriptions. Drivers quickly get to know service users and build up a rapport with them, making it a really sociable and rewarding role. Volunteers can use their own car or we can arrange a hire car.
Volunteer Drivers will ensure the safe transportation of discharged patients from hospital to their home location within the South Lanarkshire area. Volunteer drivers may also be required to collect Back to Home boxes and safely transport them to the patient’s home. Prescription pick-up may also be required.

• To provide safe and reliable transportation for patients
• To be polite and respectful and make patients feel reassured
• To safely guide patient’s in and out of the car whilst adhering to current NHS Lanarkshire guidance (patients cannot be physically assisted)
• To collect Back to Home boxes as and when required for the patient
• To pick up a patient’s prescription from the hospital pharmacy and deliver safely to their home

Community Transport East Renfrewshire .... Your Wee Red Bus
Volunteers use their own vehicles to take patients to and from medical appointments. Volunteers let us know availability i.e, which day/days they wish to do and what times. Volunteers can also let us know what hospitals they are happy to take patients to and what hospitals they would not like to go to. Drivers pick up no earlier than 8.45 am and finish no later than 5.30 pm. Normally it is one patient per driver per car.
Stable Life's mission is to support young people in the Borders who are experiencing personal challenges in their lives. We offer weekly sessions at Dryden Farm and get great results. Can you help transporting them?
Using own vehicle collect young people from schools across the Borders and transport them to Stable Life at Dryden Farm. You will be allocated a specific town and group of children to enable you to build a relationship with the young people. These relationships will be based on friendship, trust and enjoyment. The young people will then be transported back to school. Sessions at Stable Life take 1-2 hours and we will only ask you to transport young people within the Scottish Borders.
Are you happy to volunteer using your own vehicle?
Do you have a few hours a week to spare and enjoy meeting people?
If you’re an active person looking for a flexible volunteer driver role then come and join our friendly team. Without Volunteer Stock Collection Drivers we can’t collect our generous donors’ items, and our shops won’t be able to beat heartbreak forever.
We need help now more than ever to collect donated items from our supporters when they are unable to bring them into our shop themselves. You will need to be physically fit and active for this driver role due to the lifting and carrying of donation bags in and out of the vehicle.
It will be your responsibility to ensure that you have a full, valid driving licence and that your vehicle is correctly insured for carrying out collections of BHF donations – don’t worry, we can help you with this. You’ll use your own vehicle and travel will be reimbursed at the HMRC rate (currently 45p per mile).
Volunteers will have the satisfaction of enabling a diverse range of community groups and also Tweeddale residents with a disability to access social and recreational activities, attend meetings and appointments etc. Volunteers can benefit themselves from the outings and may choose to get further involved with groups for whom they drivet. Drivers also benefit from MIDAS (minibus Driver Awareness Scheme) training which is recognised throughout the UK as the standard course for volunteer drivers involved in community transport.
