Wheels2Work featured in charity guide for village communities
8th Aug, 2019
Shropshire RCC’s Wheels2Work project has been included in a manual offering tips and advice on how to build a strong community.
The Prince’s Countryside Fund – a charity founded by HRH The Prince of Wales to help the British countryside to flourish – launched their Village Survival Guide on Wednesday 1 August.
It provides an entertaining collection of case histories, checklists and practical advice, which will enable those living in the countryside to utilise the talents available in their own communities, and benefit from the examples of many others to tackle some of their own challenges.
It follows on from the Fund’s 2018 research Recharging Rural, which saw over 3,000 people tell the charity about the challenges they faced living in rural areas, and how they were pulling together to overcome these.
Wheels2Work features as an example of how to support communities when public transport is difficult to access.
Our project provides mopeds and electric bikes on short-term loan to help people get established in the workplace and give them the time to make more permanent transport arrangements.
Available in hard copy to buy, or to download for free, the Village Survival Guide features contributions from more than 40 local groups across the UK, as well as from experts and organisations including our national body ACRE, the Plunkett Foundation, and Pub is the Hub.
