Can you spare an hour or two, to do some Volunteering?
We are looking for volunteers to help deliver our Volunteer Cars service. If you are interested in volunteering, please read on. To apply to do some volunteering, please email us to tell us you are interested.
How it happens
The Volunteer Cars is a one-to-one car service driven by volunteers, who use their cars or one of our available vehicles, to drive local people where they want to go.
We receive a booking from a Westway CT member and then call you to check if you can assist. We give you the details, and away you go. It’s that simple!
Our members might be elderly, disabled or just need a hand to get out and about to do what they need to do. Our goals are to promote individual independence and combat loneliness for people in our membership.
See the very short Instagram video below, demonstrating just how easy the volunteer driving role is.

Do you want to give something back to your community? If so, volunteering may be an excellent way for you to do this. You will have the opportunity to meet people, learn new skills and gain work experience. You can offer as much time as you like, fitting the commitment into your plans. We reimburse expenses and provide training.
See our FAQ page for answers to questions you might have.
If you would like to know more, please email us directly. You can call our team on 020 8968 2040 weekdays between 9 am – 5 pm if you have any questions.
Our existing volunteer base spans a broad cross-section of society, and our volunteers vary in age and background, some might be retired with spare time on their hands, and some are students or have a disability themselves. Most people who join our team are interested in building their confidence and skills for a career change or gaining general work experience for employment.
Volunteering can be a hugely rewarding experience, and there are many benefits:
- It’s a great way to make new friends and connect with local people
- Increase your social skills and self-confidence
- Can provide you with a sense of purpose
- Help you to stay active
- Volunteers are often the glue that holds a community together
