Situation

Often children & young people with disabilities are excluded from a lifestyle which others take for granted. They want to join in and take part in the same sorts of activities as other children and gain their independence. Many people assume that a child with a disability would automatically get the equipment they need to do this but sadly this is not the case.

Solution

£100k would enable us to provide this vital equipment for 100 more children in the UK to enable them to experience these everyday things that we take for granted, often for the first time in their lives. Whether it’s a walking frame to help them to take their first steps outside or a powered wheelchair enabling them to join their family on a walk, it can literally change their life overnight. With your help we can achieve this.

  • We use it every day & his legs are so much stronger. Every child should have a bike & we didn’t think that he could but we are amazed and so grateful.

  • It’s not just a bubble tube and flashing lights, it’s a key to unlocking Tom’s potential.
