The gift of Skills for Independence – Cones
Getting around as a wheelchair user can be frightening. How will I get to the shops, play with my kids, or just carry a cup of tea to the living room? Our wheelchair skills trainers understand the challenges of life with spinal cord injury and they get people back to living life to the full.
Cones are an essential part of their kit.
About your gift: This virtual gift will enable our Wheelchair Skills Trainers to teach essential techniques for both manual and power chair users. Manoeuvring backwards or one handed; getting in and out of tight spots; negotiating obstacles and turns: these are all skills which enable people to live their lives independently.
