Event description

Description

In this very early start Transportation Access Role you will assist in the running of the Access Shuttles Pride provides to make the day inclusive to all. You will not be driving, but will be based on a minibus collecting disabled people from 2 or 3 collection points and dropping them off at the Access Assembly area.

There are no personal assistant responsibilities with this role and the driver of the vehicle will be responsible to load and offload any wheelchair users. Your role is to be an Ambassador for Pride talking about the day and what people can expect. There will also be some assistance of moving ‘stuff’ between the two sign in sites.

  • Be available to sign in the night before
  • Be able to get to Portland Place at 6.30am on Pride morning.
  • Have a good knowledge of London Streets
  • Be able to alight from a vehicle quickly and assist with carrying of light objects
  • Be comfortable about dealing with disabled people
  • Be able to give clear, concise information through a radio to the Control Room
  • Be comfortable with crowds and being Assertive

This role involves you working in a pair, so if you have a friend you want to volunteer with and would like to start a bit earlier and have a bit more responsibility – this is the role for you! There is a level of physical activity associated with this role and it therefore may not be suitable for all.

This is a great role if you then want to be an Access Steward in the Parade and are happy to start a bit earlier!

Role Registration Tips:

  1. 1. You can sign up for this role and then as a Parade Access Steward. Should you want to do this role and then something else, please contact us at the email address below for advice
  2. 2. If you are considering applying for other roles, we suggest that you wait and make your firm decision before signing up for a role.
