Need Transport?

Use our direct Transport Line (number at the top of this page) to ring in any request for drivers. As we use volunteer drivers we usually need at least three days' notice for a trip. Please use the general enquiry line for all other enquiries.

Trustees needed

Ever thought of being a Trustee of a charity? Trustees are a vital element of management in any charity, making sure that the organisation runs properly. Whilst specialist skills such as finance, marketing or strategic management are welcome, so is life experience and an interest in the work of the organisation. For more information about Trustee opportunities, ring us on our general enquiry line.

Back to School

We are happy to come into schools and talk to the over 15's about volunteering. Talks can cover what might be available, how to approach potential organisations and what to consider when looking for opportunities.
