Recycles Merseyside has been providing cycle maintenance and volunteering opportunities to young people with learning disabilities since May 2016. The scheme gives its young participants on-the-job training by refurbishing the old bicycles which are donated by the public.
The rebuilt bikes are then sold back to the community, good as new, for a fraction of the normal price of a quality, re-conditioned bike; allowing the trainee bike builders to learn vital customer service and retail skills too.
This is a unique partnership that enables both organisations to expand the opportunities they provide to the most vulnerable people living in the area.
We can help you:
- To improve your bike maintenance skills
- Gain a qualification
- Renovate bikes for people to buy
Recycles is open to all ages
