Whizz-Kidz changes the lives of disabled children and young people in the UK by providing them with the most appropriate mobility equipment, opportunities to meet others and training courses to help them to gain new skills.
Whizz-Kidz believes that every young disabled person has the right to a fun, active childhood and the chance to develop the skills they need to embrace adult life. The charity offers a suite of empowering services designed to change young lives for the better. Young people are involved in the design and development of activities, including wheelchair skills training, residential camps, youth clubs and work placements. The Kidz Board, their committee of young people, discuss decisions facing the charity and shape all of their work.
Support from players of People's Postcode Lottery will enable Whizz-Kidz to support young people with disabilities more than ever before and offer them the mobility equipment they require. For more information, visit their website www.whizz-kidz.org.uk.
