Volunteering

Worcester Wheels charity is supported by a dedicated volunteer team who support a range of services within the charity. 

We are keen to recruit volunteers to support our charity in a range of roles. 

We offer training, support, regular team meetings, uniforms and expenses.

The growth of our volunteer team within WW is a vital part of our development, enabling us to meet increasing demand and help more people within our community.

Volunteering can be very rewarding and fulfilling work and can be as flexible as you wish, requiring a commitment from a few hours to 30 hours a week. To suit your circumstance.

 

If you would like to be a minibus driver, car driver, telephonist, fundraiser or help with the day to day administration by offering a few hours or days a week please contact us for more details.

This is what one of our volunteers, Lin McCall, who is now a trustee of the charity had to say about volunteering:

Why am I doing this?

I feel as though I’m giving something back. I love being with people. My job was very absorbing, and I found it difficult to switch off after I retired.

I’ve picked up people who tell me they haven’t left the house for a fortnight – some of our clients are over 90. They are always so grateful for your help, and we really do have fun with them!

It’s an amazing feeling when someone tells you that you’ve made their day. But the way I see it, it’s the people I help who’ve made my day!

We are heavily reliant on grants and donations to meet our costs and minimize our fares.
