Required by – Community Transport Sussex (CTS)
CTS volunteers are key to services such as Travel Buddies and they simply would not be able to provide these schemes without people like you, who want to make a difference within their local communities! They eagerly wait to meet you and get you started on your Travel Buddy Volunteer Journey!
The volunteers will be with residents who are living with mild to moderate dementia, and need help getting out and about. This will help local residents to maintain a level of independence and provide respite for loved ones/carers. Volunteers can accompany the client on a bus or train to visit friends and family, go on a shopping trip or to medical appointments which would normally require a designated carer. Volunteers can devote as much time to being a ‘Buddy’ as they wish. The scheme will be co-ordinated by Community Transport Sussex, who will provide training and safeguarding for volunteers.
