Volunteer Driver

We are looking for friendly and reliable volunteers to assist with the transporting of children, young people or family members

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) are looking for friendly and reliable volunteers to assist with the transporting of children, young people or family members who are currently accessing EACH’s services at our nook hospice. This may be journeys to the home, hospice or other locations such as hospital appointments.

There may also be times where volunteer drivers are asked to transport members of EACH staff or essential items between our 3 hospice sites and other locations. Drivers rotas are issued on a monthly basis and drivers can sign up to regular days or as ad-hoc to cover sickness or holidays.

We ask that all volunteers are 21+ and hold a full clean drivers license. You will be friendly and welcoming, flexible, committed and reliable and able to work confidentially within boundaries and have the ability to work on own initiative. All volunteers will be provided with an induction by the Lead Administrator who will also provide you with regular supervisions.

The recruitment process for this role consists of an application form, informal interview and is subject to an Enhanced DBS and two satisfactory references, you will also be required to complete a driver declaration form and undertake some mandatory training ahead of commencing your volunteer role, some of which will require an annual refresher e.g. safeguarding.

Babs Wilding

Babs Wilding, retail volunteer

Spending time here is very rewarding. EACH provides such a brilliant and much-needed service and it’s an organisation I feel very passionately about. 

Tony and Jane Reynolds

Jayne Reynolds, events volunteer

It’s so uplifting and can be very varied, which is something I’d say to anyone interested in getting involved. [...] It’s a great charity to support and the hospice is such a happy, positive place, contrary to what people probably think and expect. It gives families relief and respite at an impossibly sad and complex time in their lives.

John Skoyles, fundraising volunteer

I volunteer because I know the tremendous difference EACH make to families at the most challenging time of their lives. Just one child’s smile or a parent's thank you makes such a difference and is worth more than any salary I could or did earn. We can’t make the children better or even understand what families are going through. However, we can travel part of the journey alongside them and do whatever we can to help
