A service that benefits the community

Welsh roads are getting busier. In fact, even the last 3 years have seen a noticeable increase in the number of cars and light vans using South Wales roads. As the capital, it’s no surprise that this has also meant an increased number of accidents in Cardiff too; nearly 1,500 collisions have occurred in the same 3-year period.

Car.co.uk’s social value programs see accident damaged and written-off cars like these used to help transform local people’s lives. When you use our service to scrap your car in Cardiff, we’re able to support a number of organisations to deliver assisted residential programs, HMP Academies and food redistribution networks – both locally and nationally.

Using scrap cars to create real social value around the UK

An unbeatable deal for your scrap car can also be life-changing for vulnerable people around the country

When we help you to find the best scrap car prices from vehicle recyclers in the Cardiff area, our unique way of working means we're also providing an incredible service for a number of charities and good causes, both in the UK and abroad.

The social value projects we support include:

  • Supported living schemes for people who may otherwise face homelessness
  • Food redistribution networks that ensure no good food goes to waste
  • HMP Academies and training programmes designed to reduce reoffending

While the charity work provides an obvious benefit for the people who engage with it – a wider, overall effect is felt by communities when these projects ease the strain on the police, the courts, social housing resources, and the benefits system.
