At The Bike Project, we take second-hand bikes, fix them up and donate them to refugees and asylum-seekers throughout London. Donate a bike and you'll help a refugee access vital support and community.

Whether you fancy yourself as a bit of a workshop wizard or couldn't tell your crank arms from your bottom bracket – we offer everyone the opportunity to learn new bike mechanic skills and put them to good use in a relaxed, welcoming environment.

In fact, we reckon that Thursday evenings at The Bike Project are among the best evenings out you can find in London. It's when we invite refugees and asylum seekers to come and collect their bikes - and it's also when volunteer mechanics like you join us to help mend punctures, fix brakes and true wheels.

If you'd like to volunteer at The Bike Project workshop then you need to first complete a volunteer induction. You'll complete the induction over two Thursday sessions. The first session volunteer induction is an opportunity to meet us and find out more about our work, how you can support us as a volunteer, what we ask of you as a volunteer and what we offer! We also have some important paperwork to go through.


This is a flexible activity that can be completed whenever you have enough free time.
