Dementia Canterbury runs several different Activity Groups throughout the city and needs Drivers who are able to transport Clients to and from those groups. Unfortunately transport is a major barrier for many of our clients who would like to attend our activity groups. Dementia Canterbury is seeking drivers who can transport clients to and from our weekday activity groups in Christchurch. Drivers would use their own cars to transport clients to and from the groups. Commitment can range from a couple of hours a week to a few hours a month depending on your availability and the number of clients requiring transport. A police check and driving assessment are required (which we cover the cost of).
