Giving free bikes to refugees is a proven way to help them access vital services, integrate into UK society and beat off loneliness.

But giving away just one professionally serviced bike with safety equipment costs us £100 - and we've got a waiting list of hundreds of refugees in London, Birmingham and beyond.

Everything you donate helps us clear that waiting list and every single donation makes a huge difference.​ Thank you!

A regular donation helps us deliver bikes to refugees in the new normal

For a refugee without the money for public transport, a bike can make all the difference: a free and sustainable way to access education, lawyers, healthcare and psychological support.

BONUS: We give all our lovely regular donors a free bike service. It's our way of saying thank you!
