2 x Bikes to allow staff to ride with patients on escorted leave

We would like to request funding for the provision of 2 bikes to use within our mental health service to enable patients to participate in meaningful activity to enhance their recovery. Our service works with people with severe enduring mental health issues who often have significantly reduced activity participation. It is also well evidenced that physical exercise enhances health and well being for people recovering from mental health deficits and can provide positive effects on recovery. Due to this we would like to be able to offer cycling as an intervention to utilise with our patients to provide as part of our therapy intervention tool kit. We request 2 bikes to facilitate cycling for patient which may have escorted leave only therefore would require a staff member to join supervise them during the activity.
