Whizz Kidz are the UK’s leading charity for young wheelchair users. They provide the equipment and skills young wheelchair users need to live life as independently as possible. To enjoy all the opportunities and activities that so many others take for granted ‐ at home, at school, at work and beyond.
There are over 75,000 young people in the UK who need to use a wheelchair to be mobile. Unfortunately, they cannot access the equipment that fully meets their needs through local services. Whizz Kidz is committed to making a difference in the lives of young wheelchair users. That's why they've invested £2.6 million since 2020 to support their mission of providing life-changing mobility equipment, vital support, and unforgettable experiences to young people and families across the UK.
As well as providing equipment, Whizz Kidz also runs a range of sessions designed to build confidence, independence, and employability, including Wheelchair Skills Training, activity days and work placements – reducing isolation and enhancing the health and well-being of our community.
