Devon Wheels 2 Work is a not-for-profit business that runs a scheme that helps people to access work, education and training by providing subsidised scooter and motorcycle rental.

This means that individuals living or working anywhere in Devon have access to affordable, flexible, independent transport when they may live or work in areas not served by public transport and cannot or do not want to run a car.

Max Jowett, Chief Exec said “We are pleased that Dan Rogerson MP has chosen to come to our new location in Holsworthy. Devon Wheels 2 Work is recognised as a national example of good practice both for social enterprises and Wheels 2 Work schemes, and we are keen to share our experience with the Minister”.

Devon Wheels 2 Work receives support from Devon County Council, but also generates income from its motorcycle workshop and the Devon Moto showroom to help keep the rental costs as low as possible for its customers. Any profits that we make are reinvested into the scheme and the local area.

Rural Affairs Minister Dan Rogerson said: “My visit to Devon today has given me the opportunity to hear about the vital services Wheels 2 Work provides to the local community and also talk to customers benefiting from the service – it is innovative ideas like these that will help create a fairer society and build a stronger rural economy.”
