We rely on our brilliant volunteer drivers to keep our minibuses on the road. The help they provide is deeply appreciated. The unpaid hours they put in can be literally life-changing for our passengers

New Drivers

We rely on a small group of volunteer drivers to keep Newcastle Community Transport running. If you’d like to join our driving team, we would be very keen to hear from you if you’re:

  • A driver between 25 and 69 years of age and have D1 on you licence.
  • A few hours of committed time, half a day, a day – whatever you can spare will be of great help to all
  • ideally live within a four-mile radius of Newcastle town centre
  • able-bodied, as we may ask you to help passengers get to and from our vehicles
  • An interest to help others in your local area and be part of a support network for others.
    A desire to stop isolation of less mobile or socially isolated groups of people.


In return for helping us, we provide flexible hours and the personal satisfaction of helping to deliver an essential community service. You will also become a valued member of our team and be invited to our regular volunteer driver meetings.

You’ll be more than a driver to some of our passengers – you’ll be a valued friend as well.

Other roles

If your talents lie elsewhere, you may still be able to help us in other ways. For example, we have Volunteers that help to keep the charity running smoothly. Please get in touch if you are interested in volunteering or have any questions.
