Become a Volunteer with the NIAS Volunteer Car Service

27th October 2023

The Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS) plans to increase the size of its Volunteer Car Service (VCS), which provides high quality transport to and from non-emergency healthcare appointments and treatments for patients that don’t require an ambulance. VCS is viewed as a vital part of NIAS’ Patient Care Service.


  • Volunteering within your own community
  • A supportive work environment, with a designated VCS contact and peer support via VCS Forum activities.
  • NIAS badged uniform
  • Developing key interpersonal and workplace related skills.
  • Reasonable expenses covered, including a competitive mileage.
  • Gaining experience of working within the Health & Social Care environment

So, if you are over 18, with no more than 3 points on your driving licence and with access to your own car then why not explore this fulfilling voluntary role with NIAS.
