Grants for Wheelchairs

A wheelchair offers lifechanging benefits: independence, liberation, and the opportunity for children and young people to engage with the world around them.

How Wheelchair Grants Work

We understand how tough and costly it can be caring for a child with additional needs, and want to do all we can to make life easier for families across Yorkshire.

If it makes you happy, we're happy

When you consider a wheelchair’s incredible physical and mental benefits, affording one should be as accessible as the equipment itself. However, wheelchairs are expensive, and often beyond the financial limits of families. This is where Yorkshire Children’s Charity help, providing wheelchair grants to families across the Yorkshire region.

An opportunity to engage in the world around them

Yorkshire Children’s Charity can part or fully fund a wheelchair that is unavailable through the local authority. To meet the different needs of all the children and young people we support, we welcome all types of applications, from beach, sports and all-terrain wheelchairs to manual and powered chairs.

Every disabled child has the right to a fun and fulfilled life. We’ll help them begin their journey with a wheelchair grant from Yorkshire Children’s Charity.

Are you interested in helping make things better?

If you want to make things better, you can. Donations of money is always great; but we also need volunteers to help out; or people willing to donate valuable skills from PPC to plastering.
