Our new wheelchairs which were bought in October, are extremely popular and are helping more children and young people to develop their independent skills. The blue-striped wheelchairs are our most suitable ones for children to wheel themselves around. Tuan Anh, Lan Thu and Nha (pictured) love the freedom that it gives them.
Our green, more supportive chair is great for so many of the young adults at the centre. It provides more comfortable support than other chairs, for those that cannot sit in basic wheelchairs. Being the only large chair that we have that comes with a secure tray table, it also provides more opportunities for some young people to feed themselves independently.
Due to their success, we are looking to buy more of these chairs to be able to support these independent skills in more and more children and young adults.
