Wizzybug Loan Scheme - Family support services


What we do

The Wizzybug Loan Scheme provides FREE fun, powered wheelchairs to disabled children aged 14 months - 5 years. It's run by the national charity Designability.

Children with conditions such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida and spinal muscular atrophy can learn vital movement skills, independence, spatial awareness and play more easily with their family and friends.

Having access to a free Wizzybug ensures that families do not have the expense of having to buy a powered piece of equipment and allows children to develop abilities which will set them up for a bigger wheelchair as the get older.
