Blyden’s Carpentry and Joinery (BCJ) foundation will educate and train individuals with Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI) in the craft of carpentry, using materials and techniques to design, build, repair, maintain items associated with timber which require renovation, refurbishment, and restoration. Our not-for-profit organisation's primary aim is to reduce the impact of social isolation on the mental health and well-being of people living with SCI by providing activities.

Carpentry Can be your Thing.
• Our course program is for wheelchair users with Spinal Cord Injury aged over 18.
• The course is led by people with an SCI – allowing participants to learn from others who have been there and can understand the issues and challenges.
You’ll learn basic carpentry, cutting and shaping timber, and making carpentry joints and items from wood.
