The Bicycle Helmet Initiative Trust is committed to saving young people’s lives
by promoting safer cycling and, in particular, the use of cycle helmets
The Bicycle Helmet Initiative Trust is an award winning child cyclist's safety charity. The Trust was founded in 1998 by a paediatric nurse who through her work saw the devastation that head injury can cause not only to the child but to the whole family. Since its conception the charity has grown in its drive and commitment to be an advocate for the child and young person. It also provides a community service by highlighting the need of safer cycling practices that incorporate the distinctive needs of children and young people.
   
The charity is a national resource working with parents, teachers, police, road safety officers, Government departments and healthcare professionals by promoting and providing educational programmes in schools on the need for helmet use and safer cycling practice throughout the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland.
   
Helmets have been shown to be effective in reducing potential injury to a young cyclist's head/brain in the event of a fall or impact with an object. Brain injury is devastating and we believe it is not worth leaving it to chance.
