Spring 2020 marks five years of Wheely Tots supporting families and young people in Haringey and North Hackney to be healthy, confident and more resilient.
During that time, the charity has delivered over 2,000 hours of balance bike sessions and reached over 1,000 families. We’ve engaged with 96 young people over the first year of our youth-led initiative, Your Bike Project. We’ve created 5 part-time jobs and trained 5 local people as cycling instructors. We’re excited by what we can achieve in the next five years.
In response to the coronavirus pandemic, we’re using our skills and resources to continue to support families to access cycling safely, and help those most in need. Delivering bikes and balance bikes, running a foodbank, mending bikes and helping families get out and about more continues to be our focus. Our innovative approach all helps make the wheels go round literally…and figuratively! Over the years we’ve proved that positive micro interactions contribute to our local communities being more healthy, confident and resilient. 69% of people meet someone “new” or “different” at our sessions and almost all tell us stories about increases in their health and well being.
“We received a very personalised service from Wheely Tots. We found a great balance bike fit for our daughter and she’s been spending hours on her new bike. It’s really nice to see her developing a new lifelong skill and to spend some constructive time as a family. Thank you.”
Here are five ways you can support us do more in your community, now and into the future:
- Book a remote consultation, a balance bike home delivery from our kit library, or a doorstep bike service
