We are looking for a volunteer driver to assist with the transport of clients to and from activities at our centre in Frankston to the clients' homes.

An older man enjoys an activity that promotes social inclusion and community engagement.

LOCATION: Banksia Centre, 12 Inglis Avenue, Frankston

Our day programs provide practical support and respite care to enhance the quality of life for older people, people living with dementia, and people living with a disability.

We are looking for a volunteer driver to assist with picking up clients from their homes in the morning and returning them home again in the afternoon.

Drivers are welcome to stay for the day and be part of the program if they like. Morning tea and lunch will be provided.

You will need to fill the bus with petrol each Tuesday; assist the jockey to load walkers and wheelchairs into the bus ensuring they are securely fastened; and assist passengers in and out of the bus as required. You will also need to pass a driver's assessment test.
