We curently deliver the Lincolnshire Wheels 2 Work programme which provides an affordable scooter hire opportunity to individuals who struggle to get to work, education or training. The reasons people struggle with transport are many but living in a large, rural county with an ever decreasing public transport network and many jobs having unsocial hours or shifts, affordable transport is a problem for lots of people. We currently have 101 scooters on the road but to achieve a financially sustainalbe scheme we need a minimum of 150 scooters on the road. We are therefore investigating our options to secure the funds to purchase 10 scooters each month for 4 months. This enables us to get the scooters on the road and providing an oncome. We could repay the money over a 2 year period.
We are a Social Enterprise which ensures any profits made are reinvested back into the scheme to help even more people with their transport problems.
