Ryedale Community Transport

Volunteer drivers are needed in the Ryedale area

You are paid 45p per mile at the end of the journey by the passenger which is a tax free expense set by HMRC. min payment is £4.50.

We happily take drivers who can do 1 journey a month to 3 days per week, every journey is a great help to our members. We have drivers who bring their dog along and some who bring their partner along for a drive out.

Mums who have kids at school who have the middle of the day free would be perfect to help! Drop their little ones at school then pick up one of our clients, take them to hospital or the GPs or shopping then drop them home. This leaves ample time afterwards to get home for a bit before doing the school run.

We have over 700 clients and less than 70 drivers, and due to the change in eligibility with patient transport legislation our service requirements have hit an all time high.

We do local journeys and also long distance journeys to hospitals in places such as Newcastle, Leeds, Hull and on occasion we have transported clients to Birmingham

Could fostering with us be your next move?

Fostering North Yorkshire is recruiting Specialist Foster Carers to work with our local children and young people

If you have experience of caring for or working with young people, consider using your skills to provide intensive, care plan-led support as a Specialist Foster Carer with us…

Some children need individual care – specialist fostering offers supportive placements to children and young people who display challenging and complex behaviours and may otherwise be placed in a residential setting.

Often these children are teenagers – they will usually be 10+ – however due to their complex needs a Specialist Foster Carer will be required to be available on a full time basis.  If a couple, then at least one of the couple will need to be available on a full time basis or this can be shared between the couple to effectively create full time cover.

Our Specialist Foster Carers will have:

  • relevant experienceor a professional background dealing with challenging or difficult behaviours. This may include health and social care, youth work or teaching
  • a good understanding of the experiences which the children and young people who require specialist foster placements have experienced, in particular an understanding of the impact of early childhood trauma and the reasons why children and young people are not able to remain living with their birth families
  • a sense of humour and the ability to see the positives wherever possible

Join our team and you will:

  • Receive a tailored training and  support package
  • Work as part of a multi-disciplinary team, with extensive support from our OfstedOutstanding Provider’ rated locally based social work teams
  • Benefit from an excellent package of allowances, fees and paid breaks – for example you could expect to receive around £34.5k per annum, based on a child aged 11-15 years in placement for 52 weeks

This is your chance to use your skills and make a real difference to a North Yorkshire young person who needs extra support and help to turn their life around…want to know more?

Mumbler Reviews

From time to time, I am asked to review classes, days out and other wierd and wonderful things!

This comprises of attending, taking photos, enjoying whatever it is and then writing a short review afterwards for the website which is then shared on social media.

I am hoping to get a few volunteers together that may like to do a few reviews for me? Your review will be published on the website. There will be no payment for your time but you will get whatever you are reviewing for free.

If you think this is something that you may like to get involved in, please do contact me HERE telling me how old your children are, where you live, any specific interests and what you use on Mumbler. Do send any questions you may have.

It is quite a good way to get back into work, keep your hand in during maternity leave or just experience some really cool things that you may not normally do.
