Would you like to volunteer?

Do you like to drive? Do you like meeting people? Do you want to help out in your local community?

The Gofar is always on the look out for volunteer drivers for our minibuses and community car.  Here are a few FAQ’s

How do I become a volunteer?

You can give the office a ring or call in for an informal chat with a member of our team

Do volunteers receive training?

Yes. Our volunteers are trained to MiDAS standards by our “in house” trainer. Volunteers also get a free DBS check

Do I need a certain type of licence to drive a minibus?

A Full driving license with D1 entitlement would be required. This would be on your licence if you passed your test before January 1997. You do not need this entitlement to drive our Community Car.

Do volunteers have to commit to a certain amount of hours?

No. Whether it be one hour a week or ten hours a week – whatever you can offer will be a big help to us.

Can I volunteer if I am receiving benefits?

You can volunteer if you are receiving benefits as long as you are still actively seeking work and be available for any interviews or to start paid employment.  You should always check with your benefits agency and you should always tell them you would like to volunteer.
