Do you have spare time?
Volunteers keep the wheels on our mobility buses turning! We are very fortunate to have a dedicated team at Norwich Door to Door whose valuable contributions range from driving buses, assisting passengers, making cards, office support and assistance at events. Without them, we simply would not be able to deliver our services, which provide necessary help to isolated older people, disabled adults and disabled children.
Who can volunteer?
Anyone can volunteer. It doesn’t matter what your skills, experience or background is. We work with volunteers from all walks of life – some who are in full or part time work, others who have recently retired and those who volunteer while looking for jobs.
What can I do and how much time will I have to give?
Volunteering opportunities with us include working in the office answering phones and taking bookings or helping out with any administrative jobs that arise, helping out at events or baking some cakes when needed. Other volunteering opportunities take you out on the bus as a driver or passenger assistant giving you the opportunity to meet some of the people we serve. Always a two man team for your safety and the safety of our passenger. Choose to work as often (or as little ) as you like, from a couple of hours a day to a few days a week.
You might have specific skills you wish to share with us – volunteer Audrey makes the most delicious preserves that we sell at our events, our knitting community make some wonderful woolly creations and John advises when I.T. troubles brew, along with other challenges!
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.
