Action for Kids is a national charity that helps children and young people with physical and learning disabilities find greater levels of independence and opportunity. Their support services are only available in London, but their funding programme for mobility equipment is available nationally.
Funding is for children and young people up to their 25th birthday, who need specialist mobility equipment or a wheelchair that is not normally available through the NHS. The child or young person must be resident in the UK.
You can apply for:
- Powered, manual, off road and sports wheelchairs
- Specialist mobility equipment such as specialist trikes, scooters, buggies, walkers and car seats
For more information or to apply, visit their website.
You can self-refer, or refer on behalf of a child or young person, using the forms available on the Action for Kids website.
