Summer Events for Children who use Wheelchairs

22/07/2016

The Regional Wheelchair Training Programme for Northern Ireland in partnership with Go-Kids-Go and Disability Sports NI will be offering free Wheelchair skills and sports opportunities in August 2016.

These opportunities are open to children under 18 years old who use either a self-propelling or powered wheelchair. These sessions are designed to increase the child’s confidence using their wheelchair as well as having the opportunity to have fun and meet new friends.

Parents/guardians, siblings and friends are welcome to try out some of the skills and sports in the extra wheelchairs we will make available.

Sessions are available throughout Northern Ireland and children are welcome to attend any of the sessions. Parents/guardians are required to stay with the child for the duration of the session.

Children are required to register prior to the events and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

“We had an amazing day, my son got to meet new friends, I gained a lot by talking to other parents. Very positive experience”. A quote from a parent following last’s year’s free wheelchair training programme
