Who we are
Every year Whizz-Kidz transforms the lives of hundreds of disabled children across the UK.
Whizz-Kidz is a charity that is all about giving disabled children the chance to lead a more independent life. Our service meets their individual mobility needs and ensures they get the right mobility equipment, advice and training at the right time, so that they can enjoy an active childhood at home, at school and at play.
Being independent and in control of when and where they want to go gives them the chance to enjoy a more active childhood and realise their true potential.
We provide essential mobility equipment; powered, manual and recreational; to give young disabled people the independence to enjoy a more active childhood.
Our wheelchair skills training programme furthers young peoples independence by teaching them how to get the most from their wheelchair, be safe when out and about and in turn have more fun.
ADVICE AND INFORMATION
Our advice and information gives families with disabled children and information and guidance they need to ensure their child gets the right help.
We involve young disabled people in our work and at the same time they gain essential life skills such as work experience to further their seld confidence and support their transition into adulthood.
We campaign for children with disability to raise awareness of the issues affecting young disabled people and to highlight the need for change to decision makers.
We are virtually 100% reliant on voluntary funds, so we need your support so that as many young people as possible can lead an active childhood.
