Since Whizz-Kidz was founded in 1990, we've transformed the lives of over 18,000 disabled children. We've provided essential mobility equipment to help young disabled people to be independent, and we've run youth groups (known as Ambassador Clubs), Wheelchair Skills Training sessions, residential camps and Work Placements to help young people develop and reach their potential. Here, some of the young people and families that we've helped share their stories and explain how Whizz-Kidz transformed their lives.
