Get On Board
We know having inclusive, accessible transport options is vital to allow young, disabled people to make the most of the opportunities in their local communities. Wheelchair users have delivered a strong verdict on public transport and it is clear much more needs to be done to put young disabled people on the path to independence.
Giving a disabled child a wheelchair is just the start of their journey with Whizz-Kidz. We provide a number of additional services for young disabled people, including wheelchair skills training, work placements, youth clubs and residential camps. These services, known as our Kidz Unlimited programme, were evaluated by public sector research firm, Ekosgen.
Whizz-Kidz’s Social Return on Investment
In 2011, Frontier Economics – a leading economic firm – published its second report on Whizz-Kidz, demonstrating the Social Return on Investment of the charity’s work. This includes alleviating the financial strain on families, schools and healthcare and ‘generating’ extra income by making savings.
The initial review (2010) shows how Whizz-Kidz has pioneered a model for working in partnership with the NHS – delivering better wheelchairs, faster, and reducing costs by 60%.
'Generation Inspired?' Manifesto
We surveyed young disabled people to find out what changes they thought needed to be made to support the Paralympic legacy and improve the lives of disabled children and young people. We used their feedback to create the manifesto, titled 'Generation Inspired?'.
The Access to Transport for Disabled People Report
In 2013 our Kidz Board Chair, George Fielding, gave his views and experiences of using public transport, as evidence at the Transport Select Committee.
Disabled children’s experiences of wheelchair services in the UK (2011)
'My wheelchair is my shoes' is a report published by the former All Party Parliamentary Group on Paediatric Mobility Reform (which Whizz-Kidz sponsored). The report is based on the testimonies of families and young people trying to access the right wheelchair for them.
Disabled children’s experiences of wheelchair services in the UK (2007)
‘Don’t Push Me Around!’ was produced in partnership with Barnardo’s to highlight our concerns about the state of wheelchair provision for children in the UK and the need for urgent action. The report was delivered to No. 10 Downing Street by a group of our young Ambassadors.
