COVID-19 Response – 01 April

The charity’s trustees have made the difficult decision to furlough the majority of the Bus Project’s staff until such time that we can recommence our face-to-face youth work. We will continue to provide useful advice, fun and links via our Facebook page and will responded to any direct queries from young people as soon as is possible.

This means that during this period of very little if any income, the charity will be able to survive and be ready to start back just as soon as it is allowed under government guidelines.

We apologise if this means there may be a delay in replying to any non-urgent communication.

COVID-19 Response – 27 Mar

Following government guidelines and action taken by other local organisations, the Trustees have made the decision to suspend all activities of the charity for the rest of this term (to 3 April).

This includes all youth bus sessions, youth zone sessions and courses across all our venues. Although those on our current courses will be contacted to look at how these can be completed online.

We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated as things change.

Don’t forget our Helpful-Links page for any advice, support or help you might need. We will also have some activities and ideas to keep you busy at home on our Facebook page. Also if you need a chat or extra support, then do get in touch: Contacts.

Please continue to follow government guidelines for your own health and for the health of others.

As well as offering practical and hands-on experience, you will complete a portfolio of your work and receive a certificate on successful completion of the course, including First Aid.

We have been offered a place in the Prudential Ride London 46 2020 event and are asking if you would be interested in taking this place in order to raise funds for our charity. Last year our Project Manager (Alan) took part and had a great time. His write-up can be seen here on the website.

It is a 46-mile cycle ride across London on closed roads on Sunday 16 August 2020. We would cover your entry fee and provide a unique cycling top.

Sponsored Bike Ride

On Sunday 4 August, Alan our Project Manager took part in the Prudential RideLondon46 event, here is his story:

The Connections Bus Project was offered places in the 100 mile and 46 mile Prudential RideLondon events and I thought it would be easy to get a cycling enthusiast to take part as a great fundraising opportunity. Little did I know it would be me doing the RideLondon46.
