Who We Are

Bikes for Refugees (Scotland) is a registered Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) SCO47302.

Operating since early 2016 and a registered SCIO since April 2017. In this time, we have refurbished and distributed over 400 donated bikes for refugees and asylum seekers (New Scots) across Scotland.

Bikes help 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 help families and children to link with communities, essential services and to connect with new people- helping to make new friends.

We repair and distribute bikes from Edinburgh and Glasgow. Our workshop and storage in Edinburgh is located at the ‘Bridge 8 Hub’ outdoor and activity centre in our 40ft shipping container alongside the Union Canal. In Glasgow we have formed a partnership with ‘SoulRiders’ located in the southside of the city where our volunteers repair and distribute bikes.

As a volunteer led project (many of our volunteers also have day jobs) we are not always available at our hubs and don’t keep regular hours. Please contact us first rather than just dropping by. If you are a refugee or asylum seeker, please note that we operate a waiting list for bikes and it is not possible to just drop in – please register for a bike on the website and we will contact you when a bike becomes available.
