Volunteers Needed for Wiltshire Link Schemes

18th January 2021, 10:02am | By Marc Read |

Community First supports 42 Link schemes in Wiltshire & Swindon, led by an amazing group of volunteers who help keep communities connected to local services.

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 somone to a medical appointment, taking them shopping or providing ‘good neighbour’ services lik prescription collection.

However, Link schemes across Wiltshire are down by about 70% on their normal volunteer numbers and need more to help keep this vital service going.
