CTST could simply not survive without the help of our generous volunteers. We thank all of our volunteers for their hard work and dedication to help our consumers get to where they need to be. The volunteer team combined contribute around 125,000 hours of their time annually, equating to approximately three million dollars in value.
Become a Volunteer Driver
If you enjoy driving, have a valid Tasmanian licence and would like to give back to the community, then CTST is a great way to do it.
Our drivers offer their availability to drive for a few hours a week to full time equivalent. Availability is monitored via a regular roster.
Drivers provide transport to eligible consumers throughout the state, to attend their social activities or non-emergency medical appointments.
Our volunteers are reimbursed for their out of pocket expenses, including their travel to collect a CTST vehicle, and home again. Volunteers are also reimbursed for meals when away from home more than 5 hours; need to leave early or return late.
What is the process if I want to become a volunteer driver?
After making an enquiry you will meet face to face with one of our District Coordinators for an induction session. This gives you information about CTST and our service and helps you make an informed decision about working with us.
There are a number of forms to be completed to meet regulatory requirements. All volunteers must have a National Police Check and a Working with Vulnerable People/Children Registration which can take several weeks as the external organisations process them.
Once all screening is complete and signed off, you will have a “buddy drive” with an existing volunteer and an “orientation” chat with your Coordinator, then you are ready to go.
Become an Administration Volunteer
If driving is not your thing but you are still keen to give back. We are always looking for volunteers to help around the office across our 12 regions throughout the state. CTST is an approved Voluntary Work Organisation that can meet your Mutual Obligation Requirements with Centrelink.
