Provide part-and-fully fund manual, powered and sports wheelchairs. They provide:

  • Lightweight manual wheelchairs that fit in the boot of your car but still enable the user to develop the ability to self-propel if they wish to
  • Powered wheelchairs which enable children and young people to get around more easily at school and keep up with their friends
  • Standing wheelchairs which offer greater independence and reduce the risk of secondary complications associated with prolonged sitting in wheelchairs
  • All-terrain wheelchairs for children who love the outdoors
  • Sports wheelchairs, both manual and powered, so that young people can progress to the top of their game - we fund all types of sports wheelchairs.
