Sometimes travelling to a new job isn’t always easy, even if people really want to get into employment. Wheels to Work is a new scheme in Derby that can provide job seekers or those starting a new job with a moped or bicycle to make it possible.
Wheels to Work has been operating in some areas of Derbyshire for several years. In 2012, it helped 215 people to get to work by providing 79 people with moped loans, 21 with bicycles and 115 with other transport costs. The scheme now covers Derby in order to help local people get back into work.
Wheels to Work can make recruitment easier for local businesses by opening up a new world of employment to some potential workers who otherwise would not be able to get to that job.
Applicants need to fit certain criteria to qualify. For more information, visit the Wheels to Work website.
