Northampton Volunteer Car Scheme Partnership with Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

31st July 2019

Northampton Volunteer Car Scheme is pleased to announce it will be providing volunteer drivers for a partnership with Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (NHFT). 

Northampton Volunteer Car Scheme, run by Voluntary Impact Northamptonshire, has been taking elderly and disabled people from the Borough of Northampton to medically related and wellbeing appointments for nearly 30 years. This new partnership is an exciting addition to their offering, to not only offer a new volunteering opportunity but to support other local organisations.  

They will be responsible for recruiting and training volunteers to drive the trust’s pool cars for staff and patient transport needs.  These will include patient appointments and visits outside the hospitals, as well as efficiently moving staff between sites and other locations. 

Northampton Volunteer Car Scheme and NHFT greatly value the contribution of volunteers.  They are both committed to supporting volunteering and have an excellent record of supporting volunteers to have fulfilling roles in their community and fully appreciate the time they give to enhance and complement the care provided by paid staff.

Could you or someone you know spare a few hours to help?

The volunteer driver roles are very flexible and can fit nicely into people’s lives.   Full training is given and all expenses are reimbursed.
