Community Work

We work closely with a wide range of referral agencies, 63 in the last seven years, which use our programmes as part of an overall strategy to develop a range of skills and interests in the learners.

Sources of Referrals are:

  • Pupil Referral Units - 33%
  • State Schools - 28%
  • Youth Offending Teams - 8%
  • Connexions Service - 8%
  • Youth Inclusion Programmes - 7%
  • Youth Service - 6%
  • LSC Employment Agencies - 3%
  • Children in Care Services - 1%
  • Other Community Groups - 6%

Few referring organisations, in our experience, have budgets which can support any part of meeting the costs of our programmes and they rely significantly on our counsel to enable them to access addtiional funding.  This has become an increasingly important role in our operations as greater emphasis is put on locally led applications for monies to support non curricula programmes.  As a citywide provider it is vital that The Wheels Project maintains and further develops its close links with local providers.

West of England Road Safety Partnership

West of England Road Safety Partnership fully funds our moped programmes as part of its overall programme of initiatives to reduce Deaths and Serious Injuries to new moped riders.

The Partnership is made up of senior Road Safety Officers from each of the Unitary Authorities in Avon and senior personnel from A&S Constabulary, Avon Fire and Rescue Service.

Learning Partnership West of England

Officers from the Connexions Service play a key role in identifying learners who may benefit from our programmes and who may link in to key agencies such as schools, pupil referal units, youth inclusion programmes and youth offending teams.  Officers often contact the Project directly to discuss our programmes and the needs of their learners and occasionally may even form their own groups to refer onto the Project using funding streams available.

Connexions Officers play a vital role in the exit strategy of learners completing our programmes by identifying suitable training and employment opportunities that build on the achievements and gains made by the learners during their time at The Wheels Project.

Local Education Authorities (LEAs)

The programmes provided by The Wheels Project offer a useful and important tool for LEAs to outsource for non curricular activities.  We target schools and pupil referral units based in areas of high social deprevation.

In the last eight years we have run programmes for 17 main stream schools referring 510 students who have been causing concern to staff regarding their attendance, behaviour and achievements.  Group sizes average 7.5 per group.  90% of these students completed our programmes with teachers reporting back significant improvement in attendance levels and behaviours both during and after attending The Wheels Project.

In the last eight years we have run a range of programmes for 16 Pupil Referal Units (PRUs) across Avon referring a total of 600 students who have been showing serious behavioural challenges, poor attendance and are socially and economically disadvantaged.  An eight year average of 78% of these students completed our programmes and of those that did almost all were reported as having shown significant improvement in their attendance, behaviours and re-engagement with their communities.

No specific monies to pay for our programmes are allocated by the Local Education Authority and it is usually left to the enterprise of the individual Headteachers and support offered by The Wheels Project to develop and produce bids to access independent funding bodies, many of which stipulate that programmes must be delivered out of school hours.  Such stipulation can cause jurisdiction problems for the schools and PRUs although some have the flexibility to offer staff and transport support outside school hours.

Children and Young Peoples’ Services

In April 2009 the Youth Service was charged with the responsibility of superintending the new Targetting Positive Activities (TPA) fund which offered financial support for work with key target groups of young people such as the Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET) group, young people subject to anti social behaviour orders (ASBOs), young carers and those in care.  This has enabled us to work much more closely with youth workers who are working directly with these types of learners and in partnership with all of the other key statutory agencies.

Youth Offending Teams

The Wheels Project offers its full range of programmes to Youth Offending Teams (YOTs) across the county but relies on monies outside of the criminal justice system to fund its programmes.  Referrals principally come through the Entry 2 Employment (E2E) departments of the YOTs and learners have no legal obligation to attend our programmes.  Often we find that learners are attached to YOTs on a voluntary basis which may be of interest to Trusts who are interested in supporting this initiative but not where they feel that it is the judicial duty of the Government to support programmes that carry a statutory order of attendance.

In the last eight years we have run 28 groups for 140 learners with completion rates averaging 69%.  The behaviours and life styles of this group tend to be more extreme and chaotic and require smaller group sizes to be effective.  The lower completion rates reflect this as many of the learners struggle to experience any domestic, social and emotional stability.

Bristol IMPACT

In April 2009 we successfully raised monies through the Wates Foundation to deliver programmes to prolific offenders aged up to 24 years old and attached to the newly formed partnership of Bristol's Offender Management Unit -  a joint initiative between Avon and Somerset Constabulary and Probation Services.  This new initiative returns us to our original roots where we are hoping to make a serious contribution in helping these offenders move away from offending and into further training or employment. This is a joint initiative between Avon and Somerset Constabulary, Probation and Prison Services.

What?!  That old rust bucket?!

We have come across a unique fundraising opportunity called Giveacar that could help us to raise thousands more over the next year!  They will tow away the unwanted car taking up space on your drive or in your garage for free and donate the profits to your chosen registered charity.  No car is too shabby and they can collect scrap vehicles nationwide.

So, how does it work?  Giveacar dispose of your vehicle in an environmentally friendly way, recycling at least 85% of the weight of the car.  The profits from the scrap or sale of your car then go to the registered charity of your choice.  If you choose to donate to The Wheels Project you could help us to reach our fundraising goals.

Giveacar can pick up any vehicle, anywhere in the UK.  You could raise up to £130 for The Wheels Project and it won't cost you a penny!
