Click to learn more about Volunteering Opportunities 


Out and About Community Transport has been operating a volunteer car scheme since 2000 that offers affordable transport for disadvantaged individuals living in the Magherafelt District. 

Local volunteers use their own vehicles to bring registered member of Out and About Community Transport to a wide range of appointments offering not only transport but a friendly face and companionship

Volunteer drivers receive genuine out of pocket expenses such as fuel and refreshment expenses (as permitted by HMRC guidelines) but in addition receive immense satisfaction by giving a little something back to their local community. 

The Volunteer Car Scheme is very flexible to your timetable and you will only be asked to carry out trips if you are available and have the time.

Community Transport Covid 19

"As we entered 2020, we felt that this was going to be our year for Out & About, we had big plans to celebrate our 20th anniversary by hosting an event, where local community members and local businesses could come together to witness the great work that Out & About has done over the last 20 years.

But unfortunately due to the pandemic, this had to be postponed.

Since lockdown, we have been hit hard financially as our services ground to a halt, obliterating any ability to generate income from fares and group hires.

 Within every crisis something good generally happens. And it was the hard work and dedication of the team that we pulled together and offered alternative services to our member and members of the general public during the pandemic.

To date we have provided over 4000 ready meals, we have provided pharmacy deliveries, and we have partnered with the Mid Ulster District Council in delivering the Department for Community food parcels right across the district.

In addition to alternative services, our team here at Out & About have been in contact with each and every member on a weekly basis to check in, just for a friendly chat and basically to combat isolation and loneliness at a time when things are very difficult."
