The Bristol Bike Project was started in 2008 as a tiny operation in a back garden. Since then it has grown into one of Bristol’s best known, successful and well supported social enterprises. We are formed as a Community Interest Company with a Co-operative structure, governed by our members (both volunteers and staff).
Our overarching governance is set within our constitution - a formal legal document that defines how we should operate as a Members Co-op and as a Community Interest Company.
This is a guiding document for the principles and practices of our governance. It covers our purpose and values, the different decision-making bodies, and our decision-making processes and practices.
