What we do

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

How Whizz-Kidz supports families

At Whizz-Kidz, we want to make sure we're there to support your family every step of the way.

We know that the support you need may go beyond having the right wheelchair or equipment, this is why we also offer a range of Activity Programmes, Wheelchair Skills Training and Employability Programmes to support young people to become confident and independent young adults.

Even better - you don't need to have received equipment from us to access the rest of our services!

Find out more about our services below, or feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
