Can you spare an hour or two, to volunteer?

Help us drive change for our community and support inclusivity and access.

  • Do you want to give something back to your community?

If you answered yes and you want to help local people through volunteering, please read on.

Volunteering With Us

Volunteering with us will help in the nationwide battle to tackle loneliness and isolation, and give you the opportunity to meet people, learn new skills and gain work experience.

We want to reduce isolation and alleviate loneliness for people in our local community and our team of volunteers are integral to that.

Volunteers enable our members to get out of their homes and do things for themselves, helping them to stay active and independent.

About Volunteer Cars

This is a one-to-one car service driven by volunteers who use their car or one of our cars, to drive local people who can’t use public transport becasue of age or mobility issues. The serivce helps them stay independent and connected to the things they love and need.

The service is available to Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster elderly and disabled residents who are members of Westway CT.

How it works

You can offer as much time as you like, fitting the commitment into your plans.

Our Volunteer Cars are similar to a taxi service. We receive a booking and then call you to check if you can assist. We then give you the details of who to collect, when and where they want to go, and away you go. It’s that simple!

Our members are often elderly, they might be disabled, and mostly just need a hand to get out and about.

We provide training and all volunteers require a DBS check.

Our Volunteers

Our volunteers vary in age and background, some are retired and others are working professionals who have a few hours free in the morning or evening. Some volunteers are students and studying at university.

Most people who join our team want to give something back to their local community or want to boost their confidence and skills for a career change or are gaining general work experience for employment.

Volunteering is hugely rewarding with many benefits:

  • It’s a great way to make new friends and connect with local people
  • You can increase your social skills and self-confidence
  • It can provide you with a sense of purpose
  • Help you to stay active

Volunteers are the glue that holds a community together and we couldn’t offer this car service without you.

Driver Application Form

The best thing about volunteering is knowing that I am performing a vital service for our members, if I couldn’t drive them, they would be stuck at home all day. Volunteering contributes to my feeling of self-worth, in doing something for others instead of just myself and my family.
Mary, long- time volunteer
