District Champions – March 2019

Here, at Community Connexions, we enable those affected by social or rural isolation and loneliness, and those with physical and mental illnesses and disabilities, to live a connected and fulfilling life. Imagine being unable to go shopping, to health appointments, visit family or to the hair dressers. For too many people this is a reality. We provide empathetic, safe, reliable and affordable transport to those in need. We call it ‘our sofa to sofa service.’

We are looking for 5 District Volunteer Champions to help us scale up and create sustainability to meet the growing demand for our services across Gloucestershire. The districts served are Cheltenham, Cotswold, Gloucester, Tewkesbury and Stroud.

This volunteer role involves promoting Community Connexions services in your district. You will endeavor to recruit volunteer drivers for the car and some bus services. Identify local organisations likely to provide a source of passengers, volunteers and funding, (e.g. care homes, day centres and round tables). Further, you will support Community Connexions staff to give talks and presentations to this end.
