Common Wheel supports people with mental illness by providing meaningful activities. We have three projects. Our bike project supports people in repairing and recycling old bikes into 'good as new' bikes for our clients to ride away and keep. Long term bike project participants support our Bike Engineers in repairing and customising bikes for sale to the general public, this is the social enterprise part of the project.
Our music project supports people in singing, playing and composing music and our visual arts project ‘Carnival Club Supports people in designing and producing large scale art pieces to be displayed in various parades in Glasgow.
Our mission is to improve mental wellbeing, increase skills and reduce isolation through the provision of supported, meaningful activities for people with mental illness and dementia.
