Our staff and volunteers
We have a small team based at our office in Brixton, as well as fantastic part time sessional staff and volunteers. Unfortunately we don’t have any paid vacancies at the moment but we are always delighted to hear from potential volunteers. Please get in touch if you can help remove barriers to cycling for disabled people.
Pro bono / volunteering opportunities
Strategic communications advice and support
Can you help us review our identity and make the most of our website? We’re a tiny charity but already beginning to develop a unique voice which is starting to change perceptions of cycling and of disability.
We’d love advice and support from a talented professional or communications agency: to review our logo and website and how we present ourselves (Wheels for Wellbeing & Cycling for All) and to consider how best to engage others and develop a wider community of disabled cyclists so that we can most effectively reflect and amplify an energising, positive and powerful voice for disabled cyclists.
Please get in touch with Isabelle or Lucy (…@wheelsforwelbeing.org.uk) if you might be able to help.
