About this project

Part of our Furniture Re-Use scheme which aims to provide families on low incomes with affordable furniture.  We work with volunteers – many of whom are unemployed and seeking work.  Bikes give both client groups improved mobility for job searching whilst also providing additional volunteering opportunities in bike repair.  We are an Approved Re-Use Centre, audited annually by the Furniture Re-Use Network and our procedure for bike repairs is included in that audit.
