Melksham & District Link
Our community is at the heart of what we do
What is Link?
Link is a charitable organisation run by volunteers and is part of a countywide Good Neighbours scheme that helps local residents get to medical appointments when they have no other way of getting there. We operate in Melksham and the surrounding areas to help those who need it the most.
Many clients will ask how much should I give? As a charity, we do not charge for our services but do rely on client donations to cover our running costs, which consist mainly of petrol money for our drivers of 45p per mile. The driver can give clients an idea of the mileage for their trip but the actual donation is at the client’s discretion.
If you are in receipt of certain benefits, you may be able to claim some or all of your travel costs from the hospital you are attending. Called the “Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme” information is available on the NHS website.
