What is a Link Scheme?
Link Schemes are local voluntary groups that offer a good neighbour service to local people who are in need, either because they are elderly, disabled, single parents or perhaps are temporarily in need because of illness.
Link Schemes have existed in Wiltshire since 1979 and there are currently 45 supporting rural and urban communities. This essential service provides a safety net for those unable to access services in other ways and are set up in response to the community recognising a need for this help.
Transport is provided for:
Each Link Scheme responds to the needs of the local community and uses the skills offered by its volunteers.
