What we do
Common Wheel supports people with mental illness by providing meaningful activities. We have two 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! Our music project supports people in singing, playing and composing music. Our projects aim to improve mental wellbeing, and support people in learning new skills.
Our vision is that people with mental illness in Glasgow are able to live a meaningful, satisfying life and contribute to society.
Our mission is to promote mental health recovery through the provision of meaningful activities that foster positive relationships, connections to the community, and personal development.

Special offer Raleigh Clubman bike
Common Wheel musicians have been working with Gartnavel Royal Composer in Residence, Andrew Cruickshank, on a new work celebrating and reflecting on 200 years of organised psychiatric care in Glasgow. The work was performed in 'The Hub', Gartnavel Royal Hospital on Sat 20th December in front of a full house and it was awesome!
