At Whizz-Kidz, we know how important it is to get the most from your wheelchair! Being able to use it safely and confidently can make all the difference - that's why we take wheelchair skills training so seriously!
We run wheelchair skills training all across the UK - and they're completely free. If you'd like to come along to a session, you can check our map to find Wheelchair Skills Training near you.
However, we know not everyone can get to a session, or you might want to practice at home! So we've created a series of videos - narrated by Whizz-Kidz Ambassador Rebecca - to help you do just that.
These videos were produced through the generosity of BBC Connect and Create, an introduction to what happens at the Whizz-Kidz Wheelchair Skills Training sessions; including the independence gained, new skills learned and amazing role models to learn from.
