Make A Difference

Make A Difference.

Do you want a new challenge and get involved in the community? Have you got some skills or experience you can bring to our organisation? Why not join us and see the difference your help makes?

One of the most important parts for the success of this charitable organisation is it's volunteers, whether they are car drivers, minibus drivers, shopping bus assistants or our fund raisers. Not only do we, as an organisation, rely on our volunteers, so does every member of our community that we help. That's how important we think our volunteers are. As a direct result of this, we are always looking for willing volunteers, whether it's driving for us in your own car or driving one of our Dial A Rides or minibuses. If you'd rather not drive, how about being a bus assistant? Our Shopping Bus Assistants are vital to our both our Shopping Bus and Club Bus Service as help is always needed by some of our passengers to get on and off the buses and to help them with their shopping. Whatever role you choose you wll be very welcome. 

Helping your Community.

All you need to fulfil this rewarding and worthwhile job is enthusiam, a willingness to help, a little patience and a great big helping of humour. So if you think taking elderly, disabled and vulnerable people shopping, to appointments, social events, day trips and more is for you and you can spare us a few hours a day, a week or even a month, we’d love to hear from you.

Volunteering can be very satisfactory.


Just listen to what our volunteers say........

"I joined the team of volunteer drivers in August 2014 as I wanted to give something back to the community that I've lived in for the last 14 years. Personally, it's a very rewarding job and you do get to meet some very lovely and interesting people.” 

“Volunteering for me means being able to put something back into my local community. You also get to meet some really interesting people, all of whom have a tale to tell and sometimes, at great length.”
“I enjoy doing voluntary work because I get great satisfaction from helping other people. Over the last 16 years working with ACCT I have made many friends and formed a great bond with all the elderly people I help and the other volunteers I work with while escorting.”
