Volunteer Drivers Can you spare a little of your time? Four Towns and Vale Link Community Transport are looking for volunteer drivers to come and join our friendly organisation.

By Volunteering with us you might:

  • Take someone to a GP or hospital appointment
  • Drive a group to the shops
  • Assist someone on a bus or car journey
  • Take a group out on a leisure trip

If you’re over 21 years of age and have held a full driving licence for at least 2 years, we’ll offer you MIDAS training to drive one of our minibuses. Our volunteers drive small MPVS to accessible minibuses for the less able to get out and about in the community. Even a few hours a month really does make a difference!
