Up for Yorkshire Community Transport - Volunteer Driver Recruitment Campaign
From Up for Yorkshire:
We are writing to you from the local charity ‘Up for Yorkshire’. Our overarching aim is to enable the voluntary and community sector to grow and to flourish, whilst also supporting an inclusive community for everyone.
Community Transport provides flexible and accessible community-led solutions in response to unmet local transport needs. Sustained by an incredible team of volunteer drivers, our aim is to support individuals to stay independent, participate in their communities and access vital public services and employment.
Since Covid, our volunteer driver numbers have dropped by over 50%, and like so much of the voluntary sector across the country, volunteer recruitment is a challenge. We are wanting to offer additional opportunities for access to Community Transport, but to do this, we need to recruit more volunteer drivers, to help meet the demand. We have attached to this email, the digital versions of some of the hard-copy materials that are currently on the way to you by post. If you could share this via your local online platforms, that would be fantastic.
If you have any questions, would like to discuss anything further, or would like to arrange for a member of our team to come and see you, or for you to come and see us, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
