The Bridge Centre Motorcycle Project (BCMP) is a charitable organisation, operating as a part of The Haddington Bridge Centre Ltd. The Project was first established in 1990.

BCMP works with young people aged from 11 to 24 and is designed to work with individuals who have a wide range of additional support needs by using off road motorcycles and team building games/exercises as mediums to engage them. The work is ultimately aimed at promoting inclusion and social welfare.

The 3 main types of work undertaken at the Project are:

  • Group Work Programmes (Educational Support Programmes)
  • 1-2-1 Programmes (Individual Placements)
  • Open Access Club

BCMP Works with young people individually or in small groups to develop confidence, supporting them to challenge themselves and work towards exciting and achievable goals, while learning new life skills.

The Project works with Secondary Schools and other partnering youth agencies/organisations with the aim of identifying young people who would benefit from taking part in an Educational Support Programme. The Project also works with referred young people who are not so suited to participating in group work, on a 1-1 basis.

In addition, the Project runs an open access club for young people aged 11-16 to join. This part of the Project allows self-referred young people to learn the skills and techniques of off-road motorcycling in a safe environment.

The Project requires an enthusiastic, organised and highly motivated individual with significant Youth / Support work experience to join the Motorcycle Project staff team. The post will be a fixed term for one year in the first instance.

The successful candidate will be required to work as part of an existing team for a well-established youth Motorcycle Project and will be given full training. We work closely with local schools and youth agencies to provide group work and 1-1 programmes for young people. The Project uses off road motorcycles and group work activities to focus and engage young people.
