Volunteer Driver Service

Our Volunteer Driver Service provides transport for cancer patients to and from their hospital chemotherapy treatments. Patients must be attending one of the hospitals participating in the programme and must be referred by the hospital. Ask your hospital social worker or nurse for more information.

Call the Volunteer Driver Service team on 01 2310 522.

More than 3,500 patients around Ireland have been clients of the service since the programme began in 2008. Find out how you can get referred here.


Twenty-one hospitals around Ireland currently participate in the programme, with more to come in the near future. Find out the list of participating hospitals.

Over 1,200 drivers around Ireland are volunteering for the Irish Cancer Society Volunteer Driver Service to ease the strain of travel on cancer patients. Find out more

Transporting patients to hospital makes a difference

"Not having to worry about getting to and from treatment gives me great peace of mind. It's reassuring to know that there are good, caring people volunteering their time simply to help people like me."
