The role is ad-hoc. We are a 24 hour service and we use a mass notification system to contact volunteers between the hours of 8am & 9pm. Journeys could come up at any time of the day and would generally need to be completed the same day.

We are looking for a commitment of at least one journey a month from volunteers or 12 over a 12 month period. However, on average, we arrange 4 journeys a day, so if volunteers were more available, their would be the journeys there to help out more than once a month.
