Tel: 0118 958 3585

The Bicycle Helmet Initiative Trust is an award winning child cyclist's safety charity. The Trust was founded in 1998 by a paediatric nurse who through her work saw the devastation that head injury can cause not only to the child but to the whole family. Since its conception the charity has grown in its drive and commitment to be an advocate for the child and young person. It also provides a community service by highlighting the need of safer cycling practices that incorporate the distinctive needs of children and young people.
