Wheels to Work is a scheme that offers a range of transport solutions to get people to work, training or college where public transport is not available or does not run at the times required.
Options include a 6 month moped loan with the chance to buy it at the end, subsidised bicycles including electric bikes or initial travel expenses when starting a new job.
We order oil for our members once a month. In March we ordered 75,300 litres at 33.39 ppl.
Rural Action Derbyshire has a vacancy for an Agricultural Chaplain. Although based in Matlock, this post operates across High Peak and Derbyshire Dales offering practical, spiritual and emotional support to people in the farming industry.
