Go Kids Go is running a free Wheelchair Skills Workshops for young wheelchair users and their families.
The workshop teaches skills such as coping with slopes and rough ground, back wheel balancing, road safety, and emergency evacuation techniques. They also have games like wheelchair basketball and try out wheelchair dance. There will be extra chairs so mums, dads, and siblings can get involved and join in the games. Whilst the objectives are serious the workshops are good fun! The young people will need to be able to self-propel to fully gain from the workshop. However, a mixed range of abilities are welcome. Children between the ages of 2-18 are welcome.
Go Kids Go also run free manual & powered wheelchair workshops and a practical wheelchair skills workshops for professionals and disability awareness workshops in mainstream schools. Go Kids Go work in partnership with a number of wheelchair services to deliver our training.
