Norfolk Community Transport Association

Volunteer Administrator needed

13th April 2015

The organisation, which operates in Belton, Browston, Fritton, St Olaves and Burgh Castle, needs a volunteer administrator to take calls and bookings as well as another five drivers.

The Five Villages Community Car Scheme helps residents – including the elderly and the rurally isolated – who do not have access to other forms of transport to carry out vital tasks such as attend medical appointments, go shopping, pay bills, participate in community events and to visit family and friends

Margaret Greenacre, councillor for Belton with Browston, one of three parish councils which support the scheme said: “We currently have a very good and dedicated team of drivers; however we do need more to manage the demand for the service.  We also need someone for the important role of administrator to replace a volunteer who has recently retired.

“We hope community minded individuals will come forward to help. Our drivers get a lot of satisfaction from their work and find it personally very rewarding.  The transport we provide really is a lifeline to many people such as the elderly, and others who cannot find access to other means of transport. Without us many local people would struggle to carry out simple tasks so anyone who has a vehicle and can spare a bit of time would be making a huge difference to the community.”

Volunteer drivers use their own cars to carry out the journeys, but are able to claim back mileage costs to ensure they do not end up out of pocket.

Anyone who would like to learn more about becoming the Administrator or a volunteer driver for the Five Villages Community Car Scheme should telephone 07767063986 or email [email protected]
