Whizz-Kidz is working to transform the lives of young wheelchair users in the UK. Our blogs feature the personal stories and opinions of some of the brilliant people helping us to do this – our supporters, healthcare professionals, staff and (most importantly) the young people we work with.
Whizz-Kidz has recently partnered with Guidant Group, an award-winning recruitment outsourcing specialist who are also dedicated to being Disabilty Confident Leaders. One of our young ambassadors named George, who first received a wheelchair from Whizz-Kidz over ten years ago, has continued to work very closely with us. This year, we found him a work experience placement at Guidant Group to offer him the opportunity to get a taste of the world of work. Here's what Guidant and George had to say.
We recently celebrated Volunteers Week by recognising and highlighting all of the amazing work the volunteers at Whizz-Kidz do. One of our volunteers, Saira, has recorded her experience working with the fantastic young people at Whizz-Kidz. Read more about why she continues to choose us when it comes to volunteering.
