Help an elderly couple attend their local deaf/blind social group - Maldon area

Deafblind UK have over 35 deafblind social groups throughout the country and they are run by our Volunteers.

The groups give our members the opportunity to get together and enjoy taking part in activities and day trips out.

We have an elderly couple that live in Maldon, who are now unable to get to the monthlygroup in their area, so require a Volunteer Driver to pick them up and drop them back at their home once a month.

The Volunteer is more than welcome to take part and get involved in the group, but thisisn't essential to apply for this role.

The Maldon group takes place every 4th Friday of each month from 1pm - 4pm, so the volunteer would need to pick the couple up with plenty of time to get to the group.

You will need a full driving licence and access to your own car for this volunteer role.
