Care in Mann depends on the generosity and support of our volunteers. We are always looking for new volunteer telephonists and drivers.
Both roles require a cheerful manner, a willingness to help others, and often a little patience! It is rewarding to feel that our services are appreciated and gratefully received.
Volunteering is fully flexible and you just need to tell us when you are not available.
Further details of both roles are below:
As a telephonist you will work from home, taking telephone requests from clients, and contacting volunteers to arrange transport, using the dedicated Care in Mann mobile phone.
You will receive full training.
Each month, you will be asked to submit your availability for the following month; most volunteers offer either one or two days per month, and if the latter, these can either be adjacent or separate whichever is more convenient.
As a driver you will need a full driving licence, current car service record and up to date vehicle tax and insurance.
You will need to have a current DBS check, which we can facilitate at no cost to you. You also need to carry a mobile phone.
You are able to specify any days when you are routinely not available, and can, when contacted by the duty telephonist, accept or decline a request to provide transport.
You are entitled to claim a mileage allowance for your petrol and you are required to inform your insurance company that you are doing unpaid voluntary work using your car.
If you are interested and would like to know more about volunteering, with no commitment, then please call our Duty Telephonist on 628500.
