A group of clients from our Workspace Site at Mansfield Street have been doing a bike maintenance course with the charity Ridewise! Lead by Alan Martin and David Bevan, two of our support workers, it’s been a huge success.
The aim of the course isn’t just about mending bikes though – fun as that may be (especially when you can ride them afterwards!), bike to encourage group working skills – important for some of our clients who might be looking for work – and promoting road safety. Finally, it’s a healthy activity to do.
Working with other organisations is always important for us here at Space Inclusive, whether it’s organisations like Ridewise or the Framework Housing Association we can help expand the horizons of our clients, especially those who want to get into employment.
Bike riding is always great fun, and being able to have the know-how to repair them is great skill to have. And what’s more, they received a certificate at the end of it as proof!
