Become a Volunteer Driver at one of our Activity Clubs!

Why Brendoncare Clubs?

Brendoncare aims to improve the quality of life for older people, and our growing local network of social/activity clubs is vital in combating loneliness and social isolation. They enable our members to develop relationship networks and each club aims to respond to the interests, needs, aspirations and choices of every individual.

Our Driving Service:

Our volunteer clubs drivers are integral to our clubs team as many of our members would be unable to attend without the transport offered. And it’s not just about the driving; friendships are formed, fun and laughter experienced on the journeys to and from the clubs. We’re currently looking for more people to get involved in your local area.

Who are you?

You are someone who enjoys driving, and is safe and confident behind the wheel. Using your own car, you will offer door to door transport to small groups of club members.
