Many young people in rural areas find it hard to stay in education or to find and retain their first jobs due to a lack of transport. Transport is often not available to many or the costs are too great.


This scheme helps young people to bridge the gap between dependence to independence. The equipment and youth work support given by our moped loan scheme, transforms the lives of a number of young people who are entirely dependent upon poor public transport, to 80% having their own forms of transport on completion of the scheme.
