Cars available for key workers
Are you a health worker, care worker, volunteer or charity worker? Do you need a vehicle to help people in your community? We have a car for you!
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought communities together in an extraordinary way and we at Karshare are proud to help by arranging vehicles for those who have been going above and beyond to support the vulnerable during this crisis.
Inspired by our Karshare Free scheme during the first lockdown in March, we have made a fleet of cars available in Bristol to continue supporting essential services in our communities, from homeless charities to caring services.
If you are in need of a car to support your work in Bristol, please get in touch with us.
