Location: 245 Gray's Inn Road, London, WC1X 8QY (see map)

Travel: King's Cross St. Pancras station. Swinton Street bus stop.

Start date: Ongoing

What will I be doing?

  • Volunteers will lead a 90 minute bike mechanic session at least once a month, but can be up to once a week. This will include teaching our clients how to maintain a bicycle.
  • The aim is that eventually our clients will be able to maintain and fix their own bikes independently.
  • Our clients love to chat and those who volunteer are encouraged to engage with clients and motivate them to participate as little or as much as they wish.

What impact will this have?

  • Help support SHP's award winning over 55's sport and health programme, by providing a fun, social and inclusive environment to a vulnerable clientele group.
  • Build a positive social rapport with clients, offering support and an opportunity for them to engage and potentially lead sessions of their own.
  • Present our clients with more opportunities in London by increasing their chances of transport and employability.
