Details of Role: 

Milestones Trust supports people with learning disabilities, mental health, dementia, and those with complex behavioural needs. Expressions is a year-long programme of creative events that works across the trust and culminates in an exhibition and festival that is open to the public. The focus for Expressions has always been to make the arts accessible, interactive and a source of well-being. 

Art Support Driver

As a part of Expressions, Milestones Trust run an Art club runs every Wednesday at The Arts Studios in Southmead, located at Humphrey Repton House. Many residents who would like to attend have had difficulty using public transport or have found the cost of private taxi prohibitive. We are therefore looking for a volunteer who can drive the Milestones minibus across Bristol, picking up art group participants along the way.

The main duties would be using the Trusts mini bus to collect residents from homes in the Kingswood area of Bristol and deliver them to the Arts studio at HRH (approximately 8 miles), and taking them home again after the session. Whilst the sessions are running the driver would be most welcome to join in the Art sessions or simply relax in the creative surroundings.

Requirements of the role:

Clean and up to date driving licence.

An understanding that reliability is critical.

Patient and calm with a positive and helpful attitude

Enjoy effectively interacting with people
 
Due to the nature of the role, we seek references and a DBS check and ask for a commitment of at least six months.
