Bathurst Community Transport relies on a team of exceptional volunteers who give their time to support Bathurst Community Transport in a number of ways. Volunteers are drivers, help with administration and are on our Management Committee.
Our clients are very precious cargo and so you will understand that there are a number of checks and balances as part of joining our team. All our volunteers have a current Working with Children Check, a National Police Check. In addition our drivers hold a commercial driver’s licence; a first aid certificate and undertake a driving assessment. There is regular training for all our volunteers. This helps us to keep our volunteers and our clients as safe as possible. We are very happy to help our new volunteers with all of these so call us to discuss.
Volunteering as a Driver has many benefits – not only for our passengers, but for you as a volunteer!
It can bring meaning and purpose to your life, while increasing your self-esteem and wellbeing. Volunteering can also relieve stress, and alleviate symptoms of depression. As well as having a positive impact on your community, volunteering can improve your relationships!
As a Volunteer Bathurst Community Transport Company you will receive:
- Full training,
- Out-of-pocket expense reimbursement,
- A wonderful sense of wellbeing and inclusion in a great community organisation!
We provide modern and well-maintained fleet vehicles for you to drive, with the latest technology to help you do your job.
We would love you to come and join our volunteers. Give us a call today on 6331 3322 to discuss further.
