Testimonials

YORSwitch customer: I just wanted to thank you again for your speed and efficiency in enabling me to join the scheme so quickly and take advantage of the 'reduced' rate. I have been very anxious about refilling the oil tank but this scheme has eased some of that concern. Many thanks
Fiona - Electric Tricycle User, Age 51. 'I purchased an electric tricycle as I have Multiple Sclerosis and can no longer ride a bicycle due to poor balance and mobility issues. I have found that being out on my tricycle that my fitness has improved and it has had an impact on weight loss. With the pedal assist I am still able to pedal and use my legs which is important to keep my muscles active, reduce numbness and I am also able to cycle further including hills and this also helps with fatigue as I tire easily. I have enjoyed being able to access local rural areas which has had a positive impact on my mental health and wellbeing, especially during this difficult time due to Covid-19 and being isolated as a clinically vulnerable person. This has meant that I have been able to get out of the house and feel safe whilst exercising. There are a lot of support groups on social media where I have met other like minded cyclists who have offered invaluable support and advice and I have met up with another lady tricycle rider as a riding companion.'
Mrs Surfleet a registered customer of the car scheme thanked HWRA for an excellent service and also to personally thank the driver, Terry for his help and assitance in providing transport to her medical appointment.
Wheels to Work North Lincolnshire Scheme - John from Grimsby ‘I joined the scheme in 2021 after hearing about it from a family member. I was in need of transport to get to and from work as I had my motorbike stolen and was not able to replace it. As a short-term arrangement I was relying on a family member to take and pick me up from work. For me the key benefit of the wheels to work scheme was that it provided me with a scooter that enabled me to get to and from work, it also gave me back independence and freedom. I would definitely recommend the scheme and I have done so to friends who are need of transport to get to work. Don’t’ underestimate the scooters as they are extremely reliable . My experience of the scheme was great, and I was glad that I was successful in receiving a scooter via the scheme’.

Voluntary Car Service

Please be assured that we are following Government advice on the Coronavirus outbreak with regards to our voluntary car scheme.

All drivers and passengers are being asked to contact us straight away should they display the following symptoms:  fever/high temperature and a new persistent cough.

For further information please contact Carole Foster on 01652 637700.

The service uses volunteer drivers, who use their own cars, to take individual passengers on journeys to destinations of their choice, both within and beyond North Lincolnshire, e.g. hospitals, doctors' surgeries, local shops, community group meetings, day centres, residential homes, etc.

The volunteer drivers give their time freely, but passengers are charged a mileage rate of 45p per mile to cover the cost of fuel and other vehicle running costs associated with the journey. The mileage is calculated from the driver's home, to the passenger collection point, from there to the passenger's destination and return. The rate charged is per car and not per passenger, i.e. you will not be charged more if you are accompanied by a friend/relative. We have voluntary drivers located across North Lincolnshire and whenever possible, to keep charges to a minimum, we try to allocate the driver who lives closest to the passenger concerned.

If required, our drivers are happy to provide help and support for their passengers at their destinations. They will normally wait for their passengers at their destinations for up to 1½ hours. All our volunteers are CRB checked, but we do not transport children under 18 years of age.

For more information about using the service, please contact the enquries line on 01652 637700 between the hours of 9.30am and 12pm, Monday to Friday (answer phone facility outside these hours).

Drivers needed

If you have a car and could spare a little bit of time to help individuals based in your area to overcome their transport difficulties, we would be delighted to hear from you.

A mileage allowance of 45p per mile is paid for all journeys undertaken. Please contact the enquiries line on 01652 637700 or email info@hwrcc.org.uk.

North Lincolnshire Council would like your views on being a carer.

A carer is someone who gives support to another person; a family member, friend or neighbour, who would otherwise not manage without their support. You are not paid to give this support. Many people don't see themselves as carers, even though they provide vital support for the people they are caring for. North Lincolnshire Council would like to understand your experiences and what your future support needs might be if you are or have been a carer. This will help inform the future commissioning of services for carers. The survey will ask you about any challenges faced as well as what support is important to carers. The survey closes 1st September 2022

Tree Planting and Food Production: A joined-up approach

The England Woodland Creation Offer (EWCO) is one of a number of ongoing payments that can support farmers to manage their land in an environmentally sustainable way while continuing to produce food. We're offering the opportunity to create woodland of various types and sizes in a flexible way that works for both land managers and farmers. We are inviting eligible farmers and land managers to apply for a share of £25 million available this financial year to support woodland creation in England. Land areas as small as 1 hectare and up can enter a EWCO agreement to access this funding. There is no reason to delay planting trees on your land. The England Woodland Creation Offer will, from 2025, become part of Local Nature Recovery – one of our new environmental land management schemes.
