Become an Activity Group Driver

Our activity group drivers are a vital part of the Re-engage team.
Activity Groups provide a lifeline of friendship and movement for our older people, and the regular, warm, friendly chats and companionship provide a vital link with the outside world from which they have become isolated. Drivers take older people to the activity groups and stay with them to enjoy the get-together. Over time, drivers and older guests get to know each other well and together you will spend many hours full of fun, laughter, and stories.

As an activity group driver, you liaise with your group coordinator and take older guests to and from the activity group each month. Staying at the activity group is part of your role, so it’s much more than being a driver.

To become an activity group driver, you’ll need to:

• Attend a 30-minute online volunteer group induction.
• Submit a DBS check.
• Provide a reference.
• Complete online volunteer training modules.

Tasks include:

• Driving one to two older guests using your own car to a local venue and returning them home again after the event.
• Staying at the activity group to help with conversation and serve refreshments.
• Liaising with the group coordinator to confirm which older guests you will pick up.
• Informing the group coordinator of any safeguarding concerns or issues you might have.
• Following all guidance in your driver training modules to ensure that the activity groups are enjoyable, appropriate, and in line with our charitable aims.
