We exist to help reduce reoffending through training and skills development. Our work benefits individuals, communities and the environment.

Refurbished bikes and wheelchairs

Refurbished bikes and wheelchairs are donated, via partner organisations, to people in need in the UK and overseas. A proportion of the bikes are sold through community bikerys or via the online shop to raise funds for the charity.
