Northampton Volunteer Car Scheme is appealing for local drivers to come forward to help elderly and disabled people travel to and from medical and wellbeing appointments.

The scheme, run by Voluntary Impact Northamptonshire, has been operating in Northampton borough for nearly 30 years and has recently announced a new partnership providing volunteer drivers for Northamptonshire Healthcare Foundation Trust.

Volunteers will drive the trust’s pool cars for staff and patient transport needs. Roles can be flexible and tailored to fit around volunteers’ availability.
