Donation made to ‘Westminster Wheels’ cycling training programme to help young people into employment
At United Living Group, we are committed to leaving a positive legacy for the people we work with, the communities we work in, and the world in which we operate. Delivering social value as part of all our projects, we support community projects and organisations, regularly donating goods, materials and time to help protect some of the most vulnerable in the communities we operate.
In keeping with that ethos, six bikes have been donated to Westminster Wheels by United Living Property Services. This project aims to provide young people with training for a career in the cycle industry.
Through the training programme, Westminster residents aged between 17-24 can access accredited training that can lead to a six-month job role at Westminster Wheels. Training covers bike maintenance, customer care, employability and health and safety.
Jacqueline Noon, Social Value Manager at United Living Property Services, said: “It was a real pleasure donating the six bikes to Westminster Wheels to support the fantastic work they are doing for the community. Donations such as this help train local people and provide real employment and personal development opportunities, and we are proud to have provided much-needed resource. Thank you to all staff who donated to this wonderful cause.”
Barney at Westminster Wheels said: “We are very thankful to United Living Group, as donations are the lifeblood of Westminster Wheels to help train the young people in the industry.”
Westminster Wheels is a community initiative between Westminster City Council, Groundwork London and Cycle Confident.
