Following the relaxation of the Government Covid 19 restrictions from today 19th July 2021, VASA have reviewed our current working practices and taken guidance.

Covid 19 has not gone away and with rising cases in the area, we have made the decision to continue with our current protocols in order to protect the health and wellbeing of those who use our services, our volunteers and our staff, many of whom come under the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable group.

Therefore, we will continue with the following:

  • Face coverings must be worn by our volunteers and passengers within the community transport service.
  • Good ventilation, this includes windows open in vehicles and offices
  • Frequent hand washing or the use of hand sanitiser
  • Strict cleaning procedures
  • Social distancing of 1 metre plus
  • Staff will be returning to the office gradually and we continue to monitor numbers in the building
  • Visitors to the office must be by appointment only

We will review this regularly and continue to take advice.

WHY I VOLUNTEER

“Volunteer driving is a lifeline for me. My wife died last summer, and for a time I was lonely and bereft. I was welcomed with open arms by VASA and I now drive 3 times a week. This is a vital service for the community that has made a huge difference to my life as well!”
