    Opportunity


    About this opportunity:Our organisation has access to minibuses at the weekends but often no-one is available to drive them, which means service users are unable to go out very far. Many service users enjoy going to a show or the cinema in the evenings but again are limited by transport difficulties. Ideally volunteer drivers will also be hapy to get a bit more involved with service users building their own rapport as well as providing a service by way of transportation.
