About us

On 1st October 2004 we began accepting calls from Clients and the Bourne Valley Link Scheme came into being.

In October 2014, ten years on from that small beginning, we celebrated how The Bourne Valley Link had developed into a very successful service to the community.
The Bourne Valley Link Scheme provides a free support service to enable those without access to transport, to use local services and facilities. The range of services includes: 

Providing transport for: 

• Medical Appointments
• Shopping
• Visiting relatives or friends in hospital
• Social visits

Or collecting:

• Shopping
• Prescriptions

Volunteers also offer practical help for small tasks in the home or garden and caring support eg. befriending or reading to a visually impaired client.

The Link Scheme aims to complement the provision of other services, whether statutory or voluntary. The service is provided by volunteers using their own cars.

The Link Scheme is run and managed by a group of local volunteers. Anyone wishing to use the scheme should simply call and our Co-ordinator will arrange for a volunteer to carry out the task.
