Volunteer Drivers

Treloar’s is a groundbreaking organisation providing first class education, therapy and care for young people with physical disabilities. Our students are aged between 2 and 24. Our long-term goal is to create a world where physically disabled young people learn to take control of their lives and dare to dream.

Our students and their carers enjoy taking part in a number of activities and events across Hampshire. The destinations and activities are always varied and interesting. Unfortunately many times we lack a sufficient number of drivers to accommodate the many requests we receive. Specific training will be provided and drivers will be supported by members of staff. In some cases, you will be able to participate in the activity with the students (i.e. cinema, rugby game).

We ask that drivers commit to 4 activities / events a year.

Volunteering with Treloars can bring fantastic benefits!

• Meeting new people

• Excellent training opportunities for those wishing to develop their CV

• An enjoyable and fun evening

• Satisfaction and reward in knowing you are part of our students achieving their true potential
