Welcome to the
Westbury & District Link Scheme
The Link service is for elderly or disabled people living locally who are unable to use public transport and have no one else to call on.
Westbury & District Link Scheme supports clients living in the following areas:
Westbury Hawkeridge Heywood
Dilton Marsh Chapmanslade Yarnbrook
Westbury Link offers their services to medical and social facilities between Bath and Salisbury, including Chippenham and Devizes.
Unfortunately we are unable to take clients to Bristol or Swindon, due to volunteer and time constraints.
“Estimates suggest that 800,000 people in England are chronically lonely. Being lonely is as bad for someone’s health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day and is as big a health risk as obesity.”
(The King’s Fund)
Do you have what it takes to be a good neighbour?
We need more volunteers........
to take on regular tasks such as taking people for
doctors’ or hospital appointments, or to help with weekly shopping.
If you don’t drive but are able to use a computer,
we also need volunteers to act as telephone coordinators -
people who answer clients’ calls and organise help.
Training and ongoing support is given.
All we ask is for some of your time - as little or as much
as you feel you can give.
We pay out-of-pocket expenses and
a mileage allowance to cover driving costs.
Please contact Link on 01373 859669 and speak to the coordinator
on duty, to discuss how YOU can be a good neighbour.
Volunteering: it’s good for you...and for our community
