The right wheelchair is the real difference


We know that with the right support, young wheelchair users are on a roll

Meet Jasper. He's young, disabled, but not so different. He has the same dreams as other young people – it’s just more difficult to get around. We want the world to discover that disability isn’t the difference we should care about. Watch our video to see how the right wheelchair, at the right time, is the real difference.

We are the UK’s leading charity for
young wheelchair users.

We create opportunities for young wheelchair users to get the equipment, skills and confidence to go further

Get Support

As the UK’s leading charity supporting young wheelchair users up to 25 years old, we provide them with the equipment and skills they need to live life as independently as possible. To enjoy all of the opportunities and activities that so many others take for granted ‐ at home, at school, at work and beyond.
