Good Wheel - Refugee Program

From September through to November 2014, we ran three rounds of the Good Wheel program, providing bicycles and road safety training to refugees living in Melbourne, Working with project partner AMES, the program was funded by the TAC Community Grants program, and set out to provide instruction on safe road use (along with a working bicycle) to a group of people experiencing disadvantage, and cut out of traditional learning models.

The program was supported by Victoria Police, Knog, Nutcase Helmets and delivered in partnership with Good Cycles.
