Trusts and Statutory
Become one of our grant-making supporters and transform the lives of young wheelchair users
Did you know that 52% of Whizz Kidz’s fundraising income comes from trusts, statutory and Lottery grants?
Your partnership with Whizz Kidz can make young lives unstoppable. Our world-class services depend on grant-makers’ support to create opportunities for young wheelchair users to get the equipment, skills, and confidence to go further.
As well as longstanding relationships with small local trusts, we regularly work with Lottery funders, government and large grant-making foundations to sustain and grow our vital services.
Our priority is always to ensure that we can continue and improve the range of services that we offer while being able to respond to the changing needs that young wheelchair users tell us about.
Having the right equipment for their individual needs affects every area of a young person’s life. It can improve their physical health, give them more independence and enable them to participate fully in social activities or at school.
Our strategy, Empowering Young Wheelchair Users, aims to double the number of young people we support with essential mobility equipment by the end of 2024.
We are facing a challenging time due to the impact of the cost of living crisis. The price of the equipment we supply has risen by 20%, so we are facing £500,000 of inflationary costs this year to continue to meet demand.
We would be delighted to work with you to discover what interests you about Whizz Kidz. We are happy to restrict gifts to suit your requirements, be that a focus on a particular geographical area, or an interest in one aspect of our work. Any support provided will make such a difference in helping us provide vital mobility equipment and opportunities to young wheelchair users.
We value our relationships with funders and always want to know how we can work better with trusts to support the lives of young wheelchair users.
