Kind-hearted volunteer drivers help get Dacorum charities into gear

Local charities play an essential role in supporting some of the most vulnerable members of our community, from elderly members of the community who struggle to leave their homes, to people with disabilities, who require transportation to medical appointments.
Many of these charities rely upon volunteers to support the service and these charities often struggle to find volunteer drivers who can transport individuals to appointments, events, and other important activities. By becoming a volunteer driver, you can help fill this crucial need and make a real difference in the lives of those in your community who need it most.
Community transport organisations support people who are isolated with no way to get around. You can make difference to someone’s life by helping them attend doctor's appointments, pick up shopping, or visit loved ones.
Unfortunately, for many vulnerable members of our community, finding reliable transportation can be a significant challenge. This is where local charities step in, providing vital transportation services to those who need it most. However, these charities can't do it alone, and they rely heavily on the support of volunteer drivers to help transport their clients. By volunteering as a driver for a local charity, you can help ensure that no one in your community is left behind due to a lack of transportation.
