Life cycle

 

Overview

In October 2010, the Men's Outreach Service in Broome, Western Australia, created the Life cycle program after receiving funding from the Department of Corrective Services. Life cycle is a project targeting pre-release and post-release offenders, providing them with the skills to recondition the abandoned skeletons of old bicycles.

The idea for the project included presenting each prisoner, once released, with a reconditioned 'life cycle', providing them with much needed transport to get around their communities. The program runs every day for six hours from the Men's Outreach Service, which is located next to the prison in Broome. A workshop has been set up at the centre, with all the tools and equipment necessary to fix and maintain old, run down bikes.
