Our Whizz-Kidz Clubs are a place for young disabled people to meet up, make friends and have fun!

We do everything from music, dance, art, sports, beauty therapy, cooking, trips and a whole lot more.

We even run campaigns to help improve the lives of young disabled people by raising awareness of disability issues and campaigning for better facilities.

Owen's Story

'The future seems a lot bigger'

“It’s been great meeting other people that are the same. Other wheelchair users think the same way and come across things that other people don’t even think about. If we hadn’t had Whizz-Kidz we would have been left with nothing.”

Work placements and skills days

'Invaluable experiences'

“Every part of the placement was helpful – from travelling independently to just being in a workplace. There were so many new experiences that are going to be invaluable as I progress on to university and eventually into the workplace.”
