After he retired, Malcolm felt he needed something worthwhile to occupy his time and give him a purpose. Malcolm became one of Connect Health & Community's volunteer drivers, and he hasn't looked back since (except when checking his mirrors of course!)
“Volunteering has been a great way to stay busy and make a real difference in the community,” he says.
Volunteer drivers like Malcolm are pivotal to the success of Connect Health & Community’s Community Transport program, which aims to provide more flexible transport assistance for older residents living in the Bayside area who have difficulty accessing public transport or taxis.
However, this can only happen if willing and able volunteers are available to drive people to and from appointments and activities.
The need for volunteers is immediate. The program is receiving more client referrals than it can currently service. People can volunteer as little or as often as they are comfortable with.
For Malcolm, any time given is worth it. “Even one day a fortnight or month can impact on someone’s life.” He said.
If you have a full Australian license, over 7 years' driving experience and a suitable vehicle, we would love to hear from you. Screening and induction costs are covered and drivers are reimbursed from all pickup-to-return locations.
