There's a scheme called Access to Work which can help towards costs although they will expect you to look at cheaper cost options first and provide a case as to why you cannot get a bus for example

I would have thought you would stand a better chance of getting the bus too, unless there is a very good reason for using a taxi :dunno: :dunno: :dunno: :dunno:

Hi, I live in London and applied to my local council for a Taxicard which does help.
Wish you all the best :-D

Try contacting the Disability Employment Adviser based in your local jobcentre as they can help with things like this :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

Thank you all for your replies :-D I have phoned Access to Work and am awaiting a form to apply. (I am not being greedy saying I would like a taxi to work... this is rural Cornwall) :-D :!:

I don't think anyone thinks you're being greedy Hayley. The help is available, altho there isn't a lot said to advertise/promote it :goodluck2: :goodluck2: :goodluck2: :goodluck2: :goodluck2: :goodluck2: :goodluck2: :goodluck2: :goodluck2: hope there is something that makes getting to work that bit better for you :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:
