Tendring Community Transport


TCT has a number of loyal volunteer drivers and escorts who have been with us since 1993. TCT’s existing volunteers are friendly, skilled, competent and entirely committed to serving those members of the community who need them most.

Whether unemployed, retired, working or just wanting something to do, men and women volunteer drivers are paramount to TCT’s success. Volunteer drivers’ work helps thousands of isolated residents to get out and about. This enhances the quality of life for passengers and volunteers alike. Most importantly, this work enables people to participate in community activities, it enables greater choice and the opportunity to lead independent lives.

Volunteering offers great satisfaction for those who participate. It enables involvement in helping other and this in turn helps communities. It opens up opportunities for training and paid work for unemployed people, a structured day, new social contacts and recognition.

If you have spare time, a clean driver’s license with D1 entitlement and would like to volunteer to drive one of our minibuses then we would like to hear from you. Alternatively if you have a clean driver’s licence and your own vehicle and would like to volunteer to drive for our Social Car Scheme we would also like to hear from you. Please ring us on 01255 436962 to arrange a visit to our offices in Clacton on Sea. Ask to speak to Philip Headford or Pauline Mann. Alternatively, email Pauline on tendring.ct@btconnect.com TCT pays an allowance to cover volunteers’ out of pocket expenses. Beverages and biscuits are always available. Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checks are mandatory for staff, volunteers and trustees.
