How You Can Help
Here at Whizz-Kidz, giving a disabled child a wheelchair is just the start. As well as providing vital mobility equipment, we also run clubs, wheelchair skills training and employability placements.
But there is still so much work to be done: there are an estimated 75,000 young wheelchair users in the UK – many of whom don’t have the right mobility equipment to support their needs. By supporting Whizz-Kidz’s work, we can achieve so much together:
£20 - Enables a disabled child to attend one hour of Wheelchair Skills Training where, through games and fun activities, they can develop vital skills and confidence to help them use their wheelchair safely and confidently, and become more independent.
£47 - Funds an hour of support from an expert Whizz-Kidz Mobility Engineer, enabling them to carry out a final fitting for a child’s new wheelchair, configuring the seating, controls and other features to ensure the equipment is tailored to the child’s individual needs.
£176 - Covers the cost of one day of a Whizz-Kidz work placement for a young wheelchair user, enabling them to build their CV, hone their career aspirations and gain soft skills like communication and team work, increasing their chances of securing employment
£3,700 - Provides a manual chair that fully meets a disabled child’s needs.
£5,500 - Enables Whizz-Kidz to provide a powered wheelchair, helping a child to participate fully at school and in social activities and enabling them to keep up with siblings and classmates.
