After a stroke, many people will not be able to drive and may find it challenging to access local activities, services and events. As a result, many people lose their independence and can become socially isolated. Our drivers provide a safe, comfortable transport service to those we support.
You will be expected to use your own vehicle to transport stroke survivors, and sometimes their carers and families as well as baggage and/or equipment. You will assist stroke survivors in and out of your vehicle where necessary and engage in conversation with the people you are providing transport for.
Please read the full role description before applying. We have opportunities available in the following areas:
