Wheels 2 Work
Wheels 2 Work, an initiative managed by Shropshire Rural Communities Charity, has been awarded £6,800 for an 18 month project aimed at helping people get into or keep work by solving their transport problems.
Wheels 2 Work started life in 1997 to help people in Shropshire find affordable & flexible transport to work, particularly young people looking for work for the first time, those returning to work after a long period, or working for a low wage. Wheels 2 Work started loaning out mopeds and quickly grew in size and scope, inspiring schemes nationwide. They currently offer low cost scooter, electric bike or push bike loans along with transport advice and support with car maintenance to help people find or keep employment.
The 18 month projects that Three Parishes Big Local has funded will enable Wheels 2 Work to provide intensive support to residents of the Three Parishes Big Local area. More information about the scheme and how to apply is available on the Shropshire RCC website www.shropshire-rcc.org.uk or by telephoning 01743 360641.
