Whizz-Kidz is a national children’s charity with a mission to transform the lives of disabled children and young people.  We work to change these young lives by providing the vital equipment, support and life skills they need.  

This is an exciting time for Whizz-Kidz as we launched our new strategy to double the number of children and young people we support by 2023.
