A registered charity scheme; your local community support group that can provide you with assistance through our dedicated group of about 40 volunteers.
With the decline in locally funded services we can help fill the gap by providing transport to and from hospitals, doctors, dentists and other appointments as well as help with a variety of practical tasks. We are also able to offer aid with small practical household tasks and we even have a wheelchair that can be loaned out on a short term basis.
TFVL is one of 45 support schemes in Wiltshire staffed by volunteers and anyone, of any age or ability can make use of the scheme for almost anything, and in this way we can help to improve the quality of life for residents in our community.
Whilst the LINK supports and complements local health and social services it is able to operate at a far more personal level and, for your peace of mind, all our volunteers are CRB checked and carry identity badges.
So, if you would like help just call us on 07852-256939 between 9am – 6pm Monday to Friday and one of our duty coordinators will log your request and find a volunteer to help you. All calls are charged at mobile rates. Responding to requests can be demanding so it really helps to receive plenty of notice when being asked to organise assistance, ideally not less than 48 hours in advance.
Becoming A Link Volunteer: We are always keen to hear from local people who are willing to become LINK good neighbour volunteers. There is a range of ways in which you could become involved – as a volunteer driver, helping with befriending, serving on the committee or helping with fund raising.
Being a LINK volunteer can give you a new interest and make good use of your skills and experience. At the same time you will make a valuable and much appreciated contribution to our local community.
