It’s that time of year when we start thinking about the year ahead and making some resolutions. And if you’ve got big plans for 2016, Whizz-Kidz is here to help.
We run youth clubs (known as Ambassador Clubs), Wheelchair Skills Training schemes, Work Placements and Camp Whizz-Kidz, all across the UK for wheelchair users age 8-25. These services are all completely free of charge.
All of our services are a great place to help you achieve your aims for 2016 – whatever they may be. Get involved with Whizz-Kidz and you’ll have opportunities to meet you new people, try new things, learn new skills and grow in confidence.
So what are you waiting for?
More about our services
Ambassador Clubs: These youth clubs (for wheelchair users aged 8-25) are a great place for young wheelchair users to meet up, make friends and have fun. We do everything from music, dance, art, sports, beauty therapy, cooking, trips and a whole lot more.
Wheelchair Skills Training: We know how important it is to get the most from your wheelchair and be able to use it safely and confidently. We run training for beginners, intermediate and advanced levels for ages 2-25. Our training is run by skilled and experienced wheelchair users.
Camp Whizz-Kidz: Camp is a three-day stay away from home, which focusses on building your confidence and independence. You’ll be staying with other wheelchair users aged between 12 and 25 and learning skills like cooking, budgeting, shopping and assertiveness. And you’ll have loads of fun too!
Work Placements and Work Skills Days: We know that getting a work placement or work experience can have extra challenges when you’re a wheelchair user! But our work placement scheme (for ages 14-25) will match you with employers who will give you valuable experience – or get involved in one of our Work Skills Days where you’ll learn about CV building, interview skills and more.
Sign up and we’ll be in touch to let you know about opportunities near you.
