Door2Door is available 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday for residents across the Newark and Sherwood district who struggle to access or use public transport. Journeys can be used to visit friends, attend social activities, regular medical appointments; such as doctors and opticians, or maybe just to go shopping. Volunteer drivers use their own vehicle to collect Door2Door members from their home address and ensure they get home again safely. All Door2Door volunteers have been DBS checked and received full training. We provide transport for disabled people, people with long term conditions, vulnerable older people and those often isolated and in rural communities.
Volunteers are the backbone of Door2Door and we could not operate without them. Demand for the service is increasing so we are recruiting volunteers. Are you looking to make a difference in your community? Are you caring and personable? We’d love to hear from you!
