WHALE Arts Seeking Volunteer Driver

WHALE Arts are looking for some volunteer drivers to deliver hot food to vulnerable individuals and families in Wester Hailes.

Our volunteer drivers have become a key part of our team during the COVID-19 pandemic, helping us get art parcels and lunches out to our community members who are most in need.


  • Complete driver’s declaration form
  • Deliver food and art packs to local Wester Hailes residents on ad-hoc basis when available
  • Use the delivery driver app to deliver parcels on your route, in a time effective way
  • Ensure deliveries are made in line with current health and safety requirements of delivery drivers during COVID-19, using PPE equipment provided (dust-free gloves, approved masks) and adhering to 2-metre social distancing rules.


  • A valid, clean drivers Licence
  • A road worthy car which you are insured to drive and has an MOT, if required
  • A level of fitness as you may need to use stairs


Full training for this role and an induction into the organisation will be given.


Drivers can claim £0.45 per mile driven whilst using your own car volunteering for WHALE. Were individuals are volunteering over lunch they are entitled expenses up to £5 for lunch, unless lunch is being provided by Whale. Volunteers must fill out an expenses form and attach valid receipts in order to be reimbursed.
