Build your own Bicycle
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

The concept behind Cornwall Life Recycle is quite simple. People donate bicycles that they no longer need, which the project collects, stores and then works on a one to one basis, with each participant and after the bike has been finished they then get to keep the bike   

The project is delivered from a unit on a small industrial estate, where all the units have been very supportive and have loaned equipment because they all know what Cornwall Life Recycle is trying to achieve.

Cornwall Life Recycle has established good links with local schools, organisations, Job Centre Plus and the Cornwall Development Company who signpost and refer people who could benefit from the project.

Cornwall Life Recycle also has close links to Wheels To Work who operate from the unit next door.
