The value of a volunteer

Vol time (1)

Do you have some time to give back to the community?

At TransCare we are lucky to have a very committed team of volunteers.

Some of them have been with us for a long time, others have just joined us, but they all mean the same to our organisation and clients. It doesn't matter if they come to us with a few hours a month to spare, we do everything we can to fit in with their schedule

At this time of the year there is a lot going on and some of our volunteers get tied up with other commitments, or they just get sick and we are unable to call on them to help transporting individuals who use our services. This can put a strain on our database as most days we have all our volunteers booked so covering other jobs can be difficult.

So, we are putting the word out to see if there is anyone in the community who would be interested in becoming a volunteer driver for TransCare, and help us help the community.


We do not require you to do a set amount of hours, but instead ask you what you are able to do.

We will not tell you that you have to travel outside of the area, but we will ask how far you are willing to drive.


Your help as a volunteer driver will help get senior clients to medical appointments and treatment, as well as completing local chores like getting to the shops or bank. These things may seem simple to us, but to the individuals it will mean a lot.

We appreciate every minute of time our volunteers give, and so do our clients.

If you would like to discuss being a volunteer driver, please call TransCare on (02) 6545 3113, or pop in to the office at 214 Kelly Street, Scone during office hours.
