Why support Whizz-Kidz?
Your support will help Whizz-Kidz reach the thousands of disabled children and young people in the UK waiting for mobility equipment that fits their young lives.
Whizz-Kidz sets disabled young people free to reach their true potential and live their lives to the full. The money you raise could go towards the cost of providing a disabled child’s powered chair – the ultimate gift to transforming their life, and future, overnight.
Read about Sally, Since getting a powered wheelchair, Sally has become a lot more independent and has been able to pursue her passion for wheelchair football – as well as completing a work experience placement.
