Canadian Cancer Society
BE a part of a collective of people united by a singular focus where no Canadian fears cancer. BE bold by committing your time to driving positive change alongside families, friends, healthcare teams, donors, scientists, advocates and all those who strive to make the cancer journey one that is supported in every way. We believe that life is bigger than cancer. We believe your support is stronger than cancer.
Wheels of Hope Driver: CCS’s Wheels of Hope program helps people who can’t get to their cancer treatment appointments, providing trips when people need us most. Wheels of Hope drivers not only provide a means for clients to get to their critical cancer treatments, but offer a safe, supportive ride along the way. You will become an important part of each client’s support team, so your familiarity with Society programs and services and referring to them as appropriate will ensure everyone has access to the supports they need. WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING As a Wheels of Hope driver, you will be responsible for: • Responding to requests for client rides from the Transportation Coordinator, ideally via email, and wherever possible being flexible with your schedule as busy days/times/periods change • Confirm travel arrangements with client(s) by phone • Offer minimal assistance to get clients in and out of the car (no lifting permitted) • Put client safety first by following safe driving procedures and keeping your license and insurance details updated • Adhere to all CCS policies, procedures, standards and guidelines including client confidentiality, role boundaries and our 100% smoke free policy. Please visit the Volunteer signup page on our website (www.cancervolunteer.ca) or email us at email@example.com . Please create an account and then sign up for the driver position in your city. Within a couple of days, you will then receive an e-mail response about your next steps. Thank you!
