When flooding happens we can be on the scene with our recovery trailer to help local people but we need volunteer drivers to help us get there.

We have two trailers (5ft and 6ft) that provide space for people to seek sustenance and support in the aftermath of a flood.   The trailers can be driven right to the heart of a flooded town or village meaning that those affected don’t have to worry about getting themselves to a support centre – we go to them. But we can only do this if we have the drivers to help us get the trailers to the right location when flooding happens.

If you have a driving license that will permit you to drive a 2 – 2.5 tonne trailer and you also have the time to volunteer your help, then we would love to hear from you.

Flooding isn’t predictable so this volunteering opportunity doesn’t require you to give a set amount of hours during a set period of time. The beauty of it is that we would only call you at the time of a flood or soon after. If you’re available to help when we call, then we can get to work arranging the logistics of where in the country the trailers need to get to. But if it’s not convenient then we would simply ask someone else. There’s no set commitment, we just need to have more driver support to ensure we can be there when people need us the most.

Before you undertake this role we will work with you to ensure that you are confident and know what is involved. Your safety would be paramount and we would only ask you to drive to a flooded location after we have consulted with the local authorities about accessibility and agreed a safe drop off point.


So if you enjoy driving, have the appropriate license and have the time to spare then please contact us to discuss being a volunteer driver. We would cover any expenses and provide you with a vehicle to tow the trailer.
