    AIM:

     

    To hold a series of workshops in communities in North Wales, focusing on areas of low income, where people can bring in their broken bikes and get them repaired, learning some basic bike maintenance during the session. 

     

    DETAILS:

     

    Public transport in North Wales is expensive and often irregular. Many people experiencing homelessness or vulnerable housed end up using taxi services so they can get into town, get into work, or get to shops. 

     

    Lack of transport facilities are a barrier to work and education, and the cost of running a car is beyond most people on low incomes. 

     

    Few people who own bikes know how to maintain them, and bikes often end up stuck at the back of people's sheds, and would only need a simple repair to bring them back into use. 

     

    The aim is to hold a series of workshops in communities in North Wales, focusing on areas of low income, where people can bring in their broken bikes and get them repaired, learning some basic bike maintenance during the session.

     

    Should the small pilot project in Gwynedd be successful, the project could be extended to further localities across North Wales, with the support of local authorities and housing associations. 

     

    The outcomes measured would include number of people attending and number of repairs done.
