Whizz-Kidz - Move a life forward

Since 1998 I have been involved with the national disabled children's charity Whizz-Kidz. Mobility is something which most of us take for granted, NHS services for children are often inadequate. Children with disability join a long queue for NHS services.

Looking after a disabled child can increase the emotional and physical strain on families. Having to spend time and effort to obtain mobility equipment and support services is an additional stress that they really don't need.

This is where Whizz-Kidz comes in. They provide customised wheelchairs, tricycles and other specialised mobility equipment, wheelchair training, information and advice to change the lives of disabled children across the UK.

Whizz-Kidz are also working to raise awareness of the need of these children so that they get the support they deserve from the general public and from the Government.

Independent mobility enables disabled children to experience the everyday things that many able-bodied children take for granted, often for the first time in their lives. Whether it's going to a mainstream school, joining in at sport or being able to play with friends and family, independence and freedom changes a disabled child's life, literally overnight.

Whizz-Kidz is a registered charity, number 802872
