Can you drive, and could you give up a few hours a week to help people who need help getting around? Don’t fancy driving, but could still help out?
We need volunteer drivers to help support those in need, or escorts that can help people get on and off the minibus. Can you help?
BURT is the community minibus service for Bromsgrove, and helps vulnerable residents of Bromsgrove District who can’t make essential journeys by conventional transport, either because of personal mobility/disability difficulties or because there isn’t a suitable service available.
How to get involved
We’ll need to process a DBS for you as it involves working with vulnerable people and/or children with your consent. We will also arrange to send you on any relevant training that is needed, and provide any necessary insurance. We can also pay agreed expenses, such as getting to and from the location where the minibus is.
If you want to drive we need people that have a full, clean driving licence with D1 category. If you passed your driving test before 1997 then you should automatically have category D1 on your licence – otherwise you will need to have passed the relevant course. (The D1 category is automatically removed at 70 years old but can be extended until 73 subject to a medical check.) Don’t have D1 on your licence? You may not be able to drive BURT, but why not email firstname.lastname@example.org (the local Volunteer Centre) who have other driving vacancies.
