The Bike Project workshop volunteers

Volunteering at the Workshop

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 skills and put them to good use in a relaxed, welcoming environment.

Our brilliant workshop volunteers help fix bikes, but they also pitch in with everything else that needs to happen at The Bike Project on a Thursday night.

We might ask you to help register donations on the computer, sort out a snakes' honeymoon of inner tubes, or welcome our beneficiaries and match them with their new bike.

If that sounds like your cup of tea, then read on!

Volunteering at the Office

We're looking for volunteers to help out at The Bike Project HQ. Our operation might look effortless from the outside, but behind the scenes there's so much beavering going on that we're considering a move to Canada.

You'll need to be available for:

1) Introduction and a volunteer training session

2) Volunteering at our Denmark Hill office on a weekday.

You'll need to be the kind of person who:

1) Enjoys learning new things

2) Works well as a part of a team

3) Has IT skills and admin experience

4) Has attention to detail

We can offer you:

The chance to be part of a small sociable team who are dedicated to providing bikes to refugees and asylum seekers to help with the cost of transport in London. You will also have the opportunity to improve your IT skills, gain valuable office experience and, of course, increase your bike knowledge!

So if you want to help out on a regular basis, please do get in touch – let's see how we can help each other.
