Role description

Getabout is a scheme for people who have difficulty getting around Northumberland, operated by Adapt (NE) in partnership with Northumberland County Council. The scheme is there for you if you:

  • Do not drive, either because you are too young, have never driven or are no longer able to
  • Have no access or limited access to a car as it is not affordable or not there during the day
  • Have a mobility difficulty which prevents you from using public transport.

Getabout volunteer drivers help people access services by taking them in their own car to appointments, and back home again. Volunteer drivers are paid expenses of 45p per mile for any journeys carried out for the scheme.

Desired Qualities

Volunteers will need a full driving licence and access to their own car
