Extending the Legal Right to Personal Wheelchair Budgets - Whizz-Kidz responds

Skip to Section Navigation ↓

Ruth Owen OBE, Chief Executive of Whizz-Kidz, said:

“Whizz-Kidz has long since lobbied for the legal right to a personal wheelchair budget so disabled people can actively choose the right wheelchair for their lives.

“Through our partnership with the NHS in Tower Hamlets, we already successfully deliver personal wheelchair budgets to help disabled people get the wheelchair they need, when they need it.

“We encourage CCGs to grasp this exciting opportunity to deliver more effective and efficient wheelchair services, and offer a more holistic approach to the needs of disabled children and young people instead of a one-size-fits -all.”
