On Friday 27th February Alan visited Melton Borough Council’s offices to learn about the Wheels2Work scheme.
The scheme, which allows local job seekers the chance to rent a scooter to get them to interviews and jobs in hard to reach parts of the Leicestershire and Rutland, has become the largest in the country, enabling a number of people to take jobs they would otherwise not have been able to travel to.
Alan said: ‘The genius of this scheme is its simplicity. It gets around the problem of being offered a job but not being able to actually get to it. I was impressed by the success of the scheme so far, and by the plans to roll it out further and help even more job seekers and students.’
