Could you become a volunteer driver for the community?

A new campaign aimed at boosting the number of volunteer drivers willing to step in and help their local communities get around, has been launched. Transport provided by community organisations is vital for many people in Hampshire to help them access services.

Hampshire County Council, in partnership with the Hampshire Volunteer Centre Network, the CVS Network and the Good Neighbours Support Service have organised the campaign to recruit minibus and car drivers.

Volunteers are needed to drive minibuses owned by not-for-profit making organisations subject to the appropriate training, or carrying passengers in their own cars for which they will receive a mileage allowance. Volunteers can give as little or as much time as they would like.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of driving as a volunteering opportunity and how people can get involved. Anyone interested in finding out about becoming a volunteer driver can read more details online at
