Canterbury Volunteer Centre


The Canterbury Volunteer Centre operates a transport service utilising volunteer drivers. Along with an annual membership, users are also asked to pay a mileage and admin cost.

If possible, clients should provide a weeks’ notice so drivers can be contacted in good time.

This scheme is aimed at the provision of a low-cost service utilising volunteer drivers (who use their own cars) to transport people to and from medical and social appointments. Due to a current shortage of drivers in the Canterbury part of the District, we sometimes have to use drivers from Herne Bay to take people to their appointments.


Client registration – £15.00 per year (renewable each January)

Our volunteer drivers charge clients 45p per mile plus 5p per passenger per mile (to cover wear and tear on their vehicles) plus £3.00 per return trip to help with administration costs.

These charges are for clients booking individual trips. When we do contract work we provide quotations from the office and the administration charges are scaled according to journey length and times involved.
