Marlborough & District Link Scheme is a local voluntary group which offers a good neighbour service to local people who are in need either because they are elderly, disabled, single parents or perhaps are temporarily in need because of illness or injury.

Link Schemes have existed in Wiltshire since 1979 and Marlborough & District Link Scheme was set up during 1996 to provide a service to the local community. This essential service provides a safety net for those unable to access services in other ways and are set up in response to the community recognising a need for this help.

Transport is provided for:
• Medical Appointments
• Shopping
• Visiting relatives or friends in hospital
• Social visits
• Attendance at Luncheon Clubs or Day Centres

Collecting:
• Shopping
• Prescriptions
• Library books

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.

Each Link Scheme responds to the needs of the community and uses the skills offered by volunteers.
