Whizz-Kidz Free Wheelchair Skills Club

This club is open to all, meaning that those full, part time and occasional wheelchair users; those who rely 1:1 support with skills and can’t self-propel; and those really advanced wheelchair users who want a safe space to practice wheelies, are all welcome!
