At Action For Kids they believe mobility equipment is one of the great enablers for young people with disabilities. They provide young people up to the age of 26 with mobility equipment not available on the NHS. Action For Kids welcomes applications from, or on behalf of, any child or young person up to 26 years old, suffering from any physical or mental condition that requires a mobility aid or other equipment that facilitates independence. However they are only able to accept applications for equipment which is not normally available from a statutory body. In the last year Action For Kids has supplied buggies, car seats, electric scooters, sports wheelchairs, trikes , walkers, and power packs, and welcome applications for any of these. Check their website for details of how to apply.
Independence at Home provides grants for people with a disability or long-term illness towards the cost of adaptations, equipment or other things to help a child to manage at home. Independence at Home cannot provide grants when the item may be provided through public funds. Applications must be supported by a professional involved in the child’s care, usually an occupational therapist or a social worker.
