Financial help to hire specialist wheelchair


Hi there

i wondered if anyone knew of any grants that could help to hire a specialist wheelchair for a young adult please? Preferably without needing the young adult to complete paperwork - say a health professional could apply for it. Many thanks

    Hi @Beanski2022

    welcome to the community. A specialist wheelchair would normally be given to someone through the NHS once they have been seen and assessed by a physiotherapist or other specialist. There would not be any paperwork to fill out but the young persone would need to attend an appointment. Without more information it would be difficult to give you more information but you could phone our free helpline

    Let us know how you get on

    Best Wishes
