About this cause
We're a group that wants to tackle loneliness and isolation by providing specialist trishaw rides around the local community and green spaces through our Cycling Without Age Stockton on Tees project, which aims to help older people feel the wind in their hair and create volunteering opportunities by training local people to pilot the trishaw, improving intergenerational community cohesion.
How this cause brings people in the community together
The Cycling Without Age project provides intergenerational and social engagement opportunities to people experiencing loneliness and isolation in the local community, offering a 'green' and interesting method of transport that grabs the attention of those you pass and often leads to conversations with many new people.
