Volunteers receive training, insurance, a safe vehicle and ongoing support. Women and men from all cultural backgrounds are encouraged to get involved. Volunteering as a driver supervisor is meaningful, practical and rewarding. It is an opportunity to play a positive, caring role in the life of a disadvantaged young person. Mentoring not only helps a young person practically, but also provides a positive role model for them in a relaxed atmosphere.

Volunteers are required to undertake training and have a clean driving record.
