There are two ways to volunteer: as a driver or as a Duty Officer. As a CARE Farnham volunteer driver you will meet the most delightful and interesting people who are always so appreciative of the help and support we give them. Once you have volunteered, you give as much or as little time as you can spare. Your commitment only starts when you say yes to the Duty Officer who will phone you to ask if you are able to accept a job.
BUT WILL I BE HASSLED BY DUTY OFFICERS?
We try to call Volunteers for requests for help only on days they have said they are generally available. Some Volunteers like to make themselves “always available” on a specific day or days of the week.
WHAT ABOUT THE COST OF FUEL?
Drivers may claim a mileage allowance from CARE Farnham.
COULD I BECOME A DUTY OFFICER?
Yes please! We are in urgent need of new Duty Officers who are the very heart of the operation: they record incoming requests, find a suitable Volunteer, record details on Client and Volunteer cards and in a diary. It can be a satisfying day’s work. Duty Officers, working from their own home, select their choice of day – usually once a month, but not necessarily always the same day.
HOW DO I FIND OUT MORE?
Please ring the Duty Officer on 01252 71 66 55 (9.30am to 3.00pm) or click the button below to complete the online contact form. All new volunteers will be DBS checked.
