The volunteer recruitment process exceeded my expectations and they found me a brilliant place to volunteer.


My wife Anne suffered a severe stroke over a year ago and has been confined to a wheelchair since then.

Her left side is completely useless, and she is unable to walk at all. A hoist is needed to get her out of bed to transfer her to the lounge and vice versa.

Excellent carers come in four times a day, but her life is very restricted, and she has hardly left the house.

WAV taxis were available in Evesham, but the costs were quite high because of the travel time to and from Pershore.

We were delighted when Pershore Volunteers purchased a WAV and were going to operate a this as part of their Social Car Scheme and would be pleased to help us.

The Wheelchair was easily fixed in the vehicle and access via a ramp was simple.

We were picked up from and taken back to our house and could have gone within reason wherever we wanted.

We were the first to use this service and as a trial and chose to go to a local coffee shop.

The WAV turned up on time and the driver was excellent and caring. There was space for me in the vehicle which was comfortable.

Both of us have bas passes so the trip was affordable.

Anne was well looked after, and we enjoyed the experience very much.

We will use this service again and have no hesitation in recommending them as reliable competent and professional.

Just wanted to thank you for putting me in touch with the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust. I’m loving it there.


The Volunteer Centre adviser was great, providing information about all of the possible opportunities she thought would match my interests. The referral process exceeded my expectations.  I have taken on different roles and am still volunteering there. I wouldn’t go anywhere else now


The Volunteer Centre was very thorough and the information/advice/support that I was given was great. I am working in their office and love it.


While I have not used your service frequently, I think it is invaluable and really appreciate it when needed.


My volunteer experience enabled me to practice my Microsoft Office skills and increased my confidence, which helped me to learn new skills and return to work. I appreciated being consulted on how to assist with change and enjoyed working within a very upbeat fantastic office team.


Thank you so much for your assistance, I do not know how I would manage without your support.
