MAD Wheels (Making a Difference Wheels) and MAD Wheels Youth are run by Door of Hope Christian Church, Launceston, and operate out of a professional workshop located in the Door of Hope complex. Both programs have great support from many community businesses assisting in their development and ongoing running.
MAD Wheels exists to provide motor vehicles free of charge to people in need in the Launceston community. People in the community are asked to donate their old vehicles, which are then refurbished. Some refurbished vehicles are then donated, some are sold (for necessary cash flow and sustainability). Some vehicles from the community are used for parts and others are sold for scrap metal. MAD Wheels is a totally volunteer program that operates on a Monday evening, providing a fantastic community of like-minded car lovers to work together for a great cause.
MAD Wheels Youth Mission exists to assist students to progress to responsible adulthood through mentoring and support while giving them access to practical mechanical skills and training. MAD Wheels Youth provides a program for students that are struggling in the conventional teaching environment. Students get their hands dirty working in a workshop environment, while being taught and mentored by trades’ people. MAD Wheels Youth operates on a Tuesday and Wednesday during school hours with the help of volunteers, providing a safe and supportive community for students to attend.
Both programs exist to provide much needed assistance to struggling people in the community while providing a safe place that people love to attend and work together for the greater good of the community.
