Bikes for Refugees

Bikes for Refugees website

Bikes for Refugees are a registered Scottish charity, and have been distributing bikes since 2016 for New Scots across Scotland.

Bikes support the social inclusion and integration of New Scots into Scottish life and sends out an important message of solidarity to people who arrive in Scotland seeking safety and shelter. Bikes and the transformational power of cycling helps isolated families and children to connect with communities, essential services, and to connect with people- helping to forge new friendships.

Bike for Refugees repair and distribute bikes from Edinburgh and Glasgow. The Glasgow Hub is based in Govan and can be accessed by arrangement.

As a mostly volunteer project they are not always available and don’t keep regular hours. Please contact as follows..

If you are a refugee or asylum seeker, please note that they operate a waiting list for bikes and it is not possible to just drop in – please register for a bike on the website and they will contact you when a bike becomes available.

If you are a support agency referring someone for a bike please use the same form and include your contact details.

If you would like to donate a bike to support New Scots please visit their website and complete the bike donation form.
