If you are a volunteer driver on a regular or on a casual basis, please make sure that your insurance company is aware.


Most insurance companies do not charge extra for covering volunteer drivers but some do!


The Association of British Insurers (ABI) have issued a list of companies that don’t charge and it can be found at:

Stroke Members


Our H&S Guidance states:


A Stroke Member should not offer transport to and from Group events to other Stroke Members because of the risks associated with being unable to provide the level of support needed. If a Stroke Member needs transport, this should be provided by their family, a carer,  a friend or by a Volunteer Driver designated by the Stoke Group.
