Wheelbeing Project Wins Public Health Commendation
Our Wheelbeing project has been awarded a commendation at the 2019 RSPH Awards from Public Health England.
We sent Wheelbeing representatives Nina and Sam down to London on the 18th October, to attend the awards of behalf of Bike for Good. We were shortlisted for the Public Health and Wellbeing Award, but unfortunately this year we didn’t win. However, we were delighted to be in the top three shortlist for the UK overall! Imagine our surprise, as we heard our name announced for winning a Commendation for Public Health. We had no idea this was coming, and were so grateful to receive the acknowledgement for all the hard work we are doing.
Wheelbeing is focused on cycling for physical and mental health improvement, delivered in partnership with community providers. The courses are a gentle progressive programme into cycling, and are tailored to each group’s needs and abilities. More than that, we want to make cycling a sustainable option for Wheelbeing users. We provide training for the community provider staff and volunteers to become cycle leaders so that the progress can continue without us.
