1st - 30th September

The challenge is simple: cycle 300 miles over the month of September whilst raising vital funds to help more women into work across the UK. Sign up in a team or go solo, the choice is yours!

For many women, getting a job is a lifeline. It is a chance to escape poverty, gain financial stability and restore confidence. In the wake of the cost-of-living crisis, the need for our service has never been more pronounced. 

Cycle for Smart Works is your opportunity to help empower women for job success. This year, it’s time to take it up a gear, put the wheels in motion and join us on our mission. 

By fundraising for Smart Works, you will make a real difference to our work and the lives of the women we serve. Together, we will be there for the women who need us most.

Join us this September as we ride towards a brighter future for all women.

The impact of our service is best described in the words of our clients...

This is Lorraine's story

"For the past 12 years I have been taking care of my family who have complex health conditions. It's not easy caring for someone, especially when you are caring for adults. It's exhausting. I lost myself in it. Which is why when I first came to Smart Works it was so amazing because they saw me. They saw me as a person rather than a carer, and that's a huge thing. The team was so friendly and welcoming. They picked out the perfect outfit for me which was bright and fun, and I am eternally grateful. They really calmed me down and helped me practise answering questions so that when I went to the interview the next day, I felt prepared for anything. It's hard to feel nervous when you are wearing a bright pink leopard print! It is still a struggle, trying to juggle my caring commitments with this new role. But I am more confident and feel capable because I have met these wonderful people. I feel seen."
