Using your own car
It is possible that you may need business cover if you are using your private car when volunteering. Please check you are covered with your own motor insurer - link to Template Driver's Insurance Form.
Here is a link to guidance on Using your car to volunteer from www.do-it.org.uk . This article quotes Malcolm Tarling from the Association of British Insurers as saying "Driving directly between home and a volunteer project wouldn't normally be affected by the rules on insurance."
