    Community Transport: it’s brilliant, it changed my life!

    All over the Rotherham area people rely on our drivers to get them out and about whether it is a trip to the shops, keeping in touch with friends and relatives or an essential appointment at the hospital or their local GP.

    Could you offer a helping hand to people where you live by going the extra mile and becoming a driving force in your community?

    Our volunteers find it a rewarding way to spend their free time because they know what a significant difference they are making to the lives of others. Most journeys are local but sometimes we need to go further afield. We operate daytime, evenings and weekends, but the choice is yours when to help out. Some volunteers do journeys several times a week, whilst others may just help out one morning a week or less.

    You do not necessarily need your own car as volunteers are needed to drive community transport vehicles. You will be offered training in Passenger Care and Driving for Safety and Economy.

    Door 2 Door Community Transport has been described as a lifeline that gives people back their independence and prevents older people becoming lonely and isolated. Not everyone can jump in the car or catch a bus to get to the supermarket or doctor’s surgery so if you enjoy driving and have some spare time, you may be just the person we are looking for to be an important part of the team who provide transport for your community.

    This year Rotherham Community Transport is 25 years old!

    Back in 1989 we started the “HandyBus” Dial-a-Ride with just two minibuses. Last year we moved our fleet of over 30 vehicles into larger premises and provided over 134,000 passenger rides for older people and for adults and children with disabilities. We also provide community transport for schools and community groups.

    Something as simple as a bus ride or a lift with a volunteer makes a tremendous difference to lonely and isolated older people, people with long term conditions and disabled children and their families.

    Whether it is helping out as a passenger assistant on one of our shopper buses, volunteering as a driver (with or without your own car) for our Community Car scheme, or volunteers contributing their time and experience as a trustee to help build on the achievements of the last 25 years RCT needs your support – please give us a ring on Rotherham 516092
