We provide a range of environments for those who need extra support to live independently, from young people and those with disabilities, to the elderly in extra care schemes. Our strength lies in the quality of our people and we employ those who share our aims.

Volunteer Driver Positions
Shaftesbury Place, Cheltenham

Various hours available

We are looking for people with passion to join our friendly team as volunteer drivers. Shaftesbury Place is a residential care home providing care and support to people with physical and learning disabilities. The majority of our clients have reduced mobility and rely heavily on wheelchairs in order to go about day to day life.

We are looking for empathetic and confident individuals to join our team on a voluntary basis and drive/escort our clients as they go about their day to day life. The role will involve driving our clients to a range of activities including visits to the shops, gym, cinema, appointments and college etc.

Although this role is predominantly short distance driving, you will play a pivotal role in enabling our clients to be independent and encouraging them to engage within the local community, enhancing their quality of life.

The volunteer must hold a full, valid driving licence including a D1 (vehicles will be provided) and will have excellent communication skills, allowing rapport to be built with clients. Many different experiences can be useful and relevant to our work, so anyone who possesses the above and shows a willingness to volunteer within care and supported living environment is encouraged to apply.

To apply please email your CV and cover letter to
