Our Purpose

To empower young wheelchair users by providing the wheelchairs, equipment, support and confidence-building experiences they need, and campaigning for a more inclusive society.

Why does Whizz-Kidz exist?

 What are the problems we are here to address?

  •  An estimated 75,000 young people in the UK need a wheelchair to be mobile.
  • Most young people aren’t getting a wheelchair that fully meets their needs through their local services
  • For a young person, having the wrong wheelchair can lead to dependence on others, social isolation, poor mental health, pain and injury.
  • Without the ability to be independent young wheelchair users are restricted in their ability to socialise and participate in society.

Our Strategy 2022-2024

Take a look at our new strategy – Empowering Young Wheelchair Users. We set out three strategic initiatives and make a pledge for the impact Whizz-Kidz will create for young wheelchair users across the UK

Reports & Resources

Whizz-Kidz is focused on raising awareness of the importance of mobility for young wheelchair users. In order to campaign effectively we sometimes produce, and commission, reports that highlight the importance of the right wheelchair – and its impact on children and their families.
