About Our Volunteers

Didcot Volunteer Drivers (DVD), previously known as Didcot Volunteer Centre, have been helping the people of Didcot and the surrounding 17 villages since 1987. A significant number of drives we provide make it possible for clients to attend appointments at the Oxford, Abingdon and Didcot Hospitals.

Many local people would be unable to attend local surgeries, dentists, physiotherapists, opticians and chiropodists appointments without our help.  In addition, we take people to visit family in hospital and to go to day centres.

Being a volunteer means that you have chosen to offer time and effort that you are not obliged to provide; it also means you will be connecting with others who share the same goal; with DVD, that goal is to help the community in a very practical way.
