“Go Velo is an exemplary organisation who have worked in partnership with Stubbylee Community Greenhouses to deliver a project funded by the East Lancs Clinical Commissioning Groups: Social Prescribing Fund. This funding has enabled our organisation to develop a highly successful bicycle upcycle project which has up skilled participants of the local community who face barriers to employment and well being due to their health, financial or familial circumstances.
The instructors who have consistently worked with us have proved themselves to be committed, highly professional and passionate about the work they do. Their work and consistent positive attitude, has enabled individuals who are socially isolated/mentally unwell/vulnerable/ unemployed or struggling financially to have access to sustainable transport, improve maintenance skills and regain confidence to become cyclists. Some have found work and many have improved access to many places and social groups they would otherwise not experienced.
Go Velo as an organisation have delivered sessions and organised programs to fit with our needs as an organisation and have certainly met the needs of the community we deliver our projects to.”
