'Tea & Tinkering' is a short film about our Social Cycle programme - a weekly workshop for adults experiencing social isolation. It was made by our friends at Touchpaper Productions.
The programme aims to tackle social isolation by providing the space for people to come together in a relaxed, friendly, nonjudgmental environment fixing up bikes that go towards our Earn-a-Bike programmes. Social isolation and loneliness is on the rise, effecting over 9 million people across the UK, according to The Red Cross. Taken alongside the ongoing cuts to mental health services, providing this sort of space is an increasingly important part of what we do here at the project.
