Volunteer

Do you have some spare time?

Our team of volunteers is the backbone of the Norwich Door to Door service. Anyone can volunteer. You might be in work or unemployed, recently retired, a homemaker or a student. Whatever your skills or background, we offer the training you need to help us deliver our services to disabled adults and children and isolated older people. You can work several days a week, or half a day a fortnight – we don’t mind. We offer a small out-of-pocket expenses payment to our volunteers.

 

What needs doing?

We are always on the lookout for new drivers and passenger assistants to crew the buses, but there’s much more than that. We need volunteers to assist in our busy office at the Community Hospital in Bowthorpe Road and at our special events, manning stalls, selling books, making cakes, and other promotional activities.

 

We are also keen to hear from people prepared to share their skills in business, marketing and networking who might consider serving a two or three year term as a trustee of Norwich Door to Door. If you are passionate about equality and social inclusion, you could help push forward the development of our project with our Chief Executive.

Why volunteer?

The reward of supporting others in the community comes with opportunities to gain new training and skills.

 

  • Passenger Assistant Training: keeping passengers safe and comfortable on the bus
  • Driver Training: on the government-approved Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme (MiDAS)
  • First Aid Training
  • A chance to try out something new
  • Participate in something useful and rewarding
  • Gain a sense of purpose and achievement
  • Put something back into the community
  • Develop personal skills and confidence
  • Helpful for your CV

Where do I start?

After completing an application form and an interview, all volunteers are subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and fully referenced before training begins.

 

If you are a prospective supporter or volunteer please contact our Chief Executive on 01603 776732.

Trustees

Trustees who work with us dedicate two or three years to lend their skills and participate in our organisation. People must be willing to help push forward new developments and get passionate about equality. They must be prepared to share their skills in business, marketing and introduce new friends.

 

If you have the time and want to join a proactive and enthusiastic group call us today. We are passionate about developing an equal community and we want people who want to take part in building up our local community so that everyone is able to contribute in whatever way they can.
