Link schemes help to keep local communities connected to vital services, by connecting volunteer drivers (using their own cars), with passengers who have limited access to transport. Depending on volunteer availability, this can involve taking someone to a medical appointment, taking them shopping or providing ‘good neighbour’ services like prescription collection.
A donation is requested from passengers using Link volunteer cars to support the cost of running the service. Each Link scheme is run by a group of local volunteers managed by a local Link co-ordinator. People wishing to use the service, simply call their local co-ordinator who will endeavour to arrange for a volunteer to carry out the task.
Link schemes are community-based, volunteer run charities based predominantly in Wiltshire which aim to improve the quality of life for disadvantaged, infirm or isolated people by providing transport and ‘good neighbour’ services.
