Volunteers wanted

LINK is a team of local volunteer drivers and coordinators who help the community by transporting people in need. We support and complement the local Community Health and Social Services. LINK is organised by a committee of local people who oversee the general running of the scheme.

Chippenham LINK Transport covers Chippenham, Chippenham Without, Langley Burrell, Sutton Benger and Tytherton.   We provide transport for anyone living in our area , regardless of age or circumstances, who needs to get to a medical appointment.

In 2019, our volunteers completed over 2,800 journeys and travelled over 65,000 miles.

If you have some time to spare and would like to help us provide and improve our service we’d love to hear from you.

We need drivers, coordinators (to answer the ‘phone and schedule client requests), and committee members.

Being a LINK volunteer can give you a new interest and make good use of your skills and experience. At the same time, you will make a valuable and much appreciated contribution to the local Community. If you are interested please ring 01249 461881 or email chippenhamlinktransport@gmail.com.
