Wheels2Work – Helping Three Parishes Residents Stay in Work


A Three Parishes resident has been able to stay in work, thanks to a transport loan through Shropshire Rural Communities Charity's Wheels2Work scheme.

Kyle, from Gobowen, had lift-shared from Gobowen to work in Welshpool but when his driver-colleague left his job, Kyle was going to lose his means of getting to work. He contacted Wheels2Work who were able to loan him a 125cc Scooter.


Kyle says of the scheme, "it has personally helped me a lot. Without it I would have lost my job".

Wheels2Work can loan at a low, subsidised rate, 50cc Mopeds, 125cc Scooters, electric bikes and bicycles to eligible clients who have either an existing job or a firm job offer.

The Wheels2Work scheme is available across Shropshire but thanks to localised funding through the Three Parishes Big Local Project, we are able to focus on delivering our services to residents of and people who work in the Three Parishes area (Gobowen, Weston Rhyn and St Martins).

Please contact Wheels2Work on 01743 237885 or email at wheels2work@community-resource.org.uk for more information.
