Dundee Safe Zone is a project run by a team from Tayside Council on Alcohol, the Red Cross, CAIR Scotland, Dundee Street Chaplains and also Police Scotland. They provide a safe place in the City Centre at night time on the weekends for people who are adversely affected by alcohol or drugs. At the Safe Zone, those on a night out can get water, blankets, phone charging etc. The Safe Zone team are there to listen, be friendly, make people feel comfortable and make sure they get home safely.

The project is seeking drivers for their single decker Safe Zone bus which is driven from its base to the Safe Zone in Dundee City Centre for the hours of 10pm to 4 am and then driven back to its base afterwards. Members of the team also patrol the City Centre in a minibus and collect anyone who might need their support and they are also looking for minibus drivers.

This driving opportunity would suit someone with a HGV/PCV licence but full training is available for anyone with a car licence who might be interested in this role and is willing to learn. Also, you don’t have to just be a driver. You can also get involved with the team providing support.
