Driver – Insight Support Group

We are the Insight Club, a group with sight impairment. We meet at The Riverside Resource Centre, Kitty Brewster Estate, Blyth on a fortnightly basis, on Tuesday evenings from 6.30pm – 9pm. Some of our members live in Cramlington and Blyth – for some of the members it can be the only time they get to socialise with like-minded people.

Unfortunately, our present driver, who has been with the group for several years, has decided to call it a day later this year, therefore, we are looking for a volunteer to take his place.

Guidance and a full explanation of the role will be given by the present driver. If you think you can help, please contact NCBA, telephone 01670 514316 or email: as your help will be much appreciated.

Please note: drivers must be between 21 – 70 years of age and driving for at least 3 years.
