We are seeking a friendly, reliable, professional passenger assistant to join HCT support to users of the services according to their individual needs and requirements on their journey to Hackney libraries as well as participate in the sessions to encourage service user involvement.

The Reader is working with Hackney Libraries and HCT Group to bring people together for weekly shared reading groups where they can enjoy stories, poems and good company.  HCT Group will provide the transport to and from people’s homes is a key component of making this happen and giving people who would find it difficult to come on their own, a chance to participate.
