become a driving volunteer

Volunteering as a driver at our Chalfont Centre is a very practical way of helping our residents to lead as full a life as possible. We need drivers for the regular trips that residents make into the community to attend local events, enjoy pub lunches or visit particular attractions or activities.

To provide transport for these popular excursions, we have a pool of cars with ramp access, as well as mini buses.

What we need from you

To become a volunteer driver, you’ll need to be at least 21 years old (25 years old for MPV drivers) with a current, clean driving licence. We’ll ask you to undergo Buckingham County Council’s business driving assessment to check your competency to drive our vehicles. Epilepsy Society pays for this. You’ll also need to undertake our safe passenger training.

We’ll ask you for a regular commitment that suits both you and Epilepsy Society. We need drivers mainly during the day and at weekends, but there are some evening slots.
