Volunteers

Could you spare a little time to make a big difference?

For some of our neighbours in Rickmansworth, being unable to drive or use public transport can be a real burden. 

Our volunteers help them to access the things that matter to them in the local area; it can be as simple as a shopping trip or a visit to an old friend. It can also be transport to hospitals such as Watford General, St Albans and as happens now further afield.

There are two types of volunteers - duty officers and drivers.


Drivers

By volunteering as a driver, you’ll be making a huge difference to their lives and to our community. You don’t need any experience and we can work around your schedule. 

Drivers are not usually called on more than once a month.

They are not expected to change personal arrangements to fit in with Rickmansworth Care, and can therefore decline to take on a job. In this case the Duty Officer will contact another volunteer.





Duty Officers

Once a month  Duty Officers take the incoming calls (requests) during the hours of 9.30 am to 12.30 pm from our clients using the Care mobile phone. 

It is their job to match a volunteer from our list to the request for help.

Duty Officers are on duty on the same day every month, e.g. the second Tuesday, but duties can be changed with another Duty Officer, by mutual agreement.


Maintaining the Service

We are always on the lookout for additional volunteers. So, if you have your own car and you are interested in joining our team, or can man the phone once a month, 

please call us today on 07935 269144, or email us at rickmansworthcare@gmail.com.
