17 year old with few academic qualifications found himself an apprenticeship but his father was travelling 250 miles per week in distance, time and mileage cost to take him to and from work.

A 28 year old married man with a young baby was in employment with British Rail but had to move from his accommodation close to work to a rural and more affordable area. He was cycling 20 miles each way to get to work for a 6am start as there was no public transport. He tried to get funding to take a car driving test but it was suggested for a similar loan sum he could join the W2W scheme and be guaranteed transport rather than the risk of lessons for a test he might fail. He is delighted to be mobile and his ability to travel means he has already been offered a promotion with his employer. The employer also allowed him to pay the loan direct from his pay.

A 32 year old male was long term unemployed but he married and moved to a rural area. He found himself a job as a council employee but could not get to the depot at the times needed. He joined the scheme and is now in full time employment and with a second part time job because he has transport.

A 18 year old female was attending college and a part time apprenticeship which she was able to access using a country bus service. That service was axed at short notice potentially leaving her without education or employment. Joining the W2W scheme resolved all those issues for her and she can now get to travel and have a greater social life.

A 23-year-old male was unemployed because he did not have transport from his home in affordable housing in a rural town to any potential agricultural contractor employers. He found work through Job Centre Plus who referred him to RDW2W for help with transport. RDW2W loaned him a bike so he could start work immediately and whilst he arranged a loan through First Dorset Credit Union to purchase his own bike. Within weeks the employer was so pleased with his work he has been offered further specialist training in agricultural contracting and the offer of further full time work beyond the initial seasonal contract and is in training to be an instructor on agricultural machinery.
