L'Arche London
We're L'Arche, an international movement of communities for people with and without learning disabilities. L'Arche London, based in West Norwood, is made up of about 100 people with and without learning disabilities, some of whom live in our community houses and others who participate in our workshops or drama group. Joy, openness, and relationship is at the heart of our shared…

Volunteer to drive our members with learning disabilities around in our minibus and get free driving training.

We have a minibus to take members to events and trips but only have a handful of drivers! You would need to have a full driving license with no convictions and we'd pay for your training and test to drive a van. This wouldn't be a regular commitment, we'd get in touch when we had an event which needed a driver.

This is a chance to join a fun intentional community and join our members on day trips. If you like driving and want to upskill and learn to drive a van, this is the perfect opportunity for you.


You'll be completing training to get your minibus license and then will drive our van when we have trips.

Who will the volunteers be working with?
The volunteers will be supported by the Volunteer Coordinator but on a day to day basis they will work with the members with learning disabilities and the assistants who support our members. The training is with a company called Minerva.
Receive free training to drive a minibus.
Oppportunity to do a variety of trainings including first aid, sign language, health and safety, and autism awareness.

Time commitment

This is very flexible - once you've got the license, we would get in touch with you when we had a trip that needed a driver. This would probably be about once a month.

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working to keep you safe and supported whilst you volunteer.

You’ll never be out of pocket for volunteering through us – with in-London travel expenses to and from your volunteering guaranteed.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch with us at any time.
