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 have been there. They understand the challenges of life with spinal cord injury and they’ll get you back to living life to the full.
From pushing technique, getting over obstacles and up kerbs, to back wheel balancing and transfers, our manual or power chair sessions are tailored to help you live the life you want.
Held in spinal centres or general hospitals around the UK for any ability, age or injury level, our accredited skills trainers will use their years of experience as wheelchair users to help you establish everyday skills.
Stage 2: Wheelchair skills extra
Held in ‘real-world’ locations around the UK you’ll be able to practise and refine your skills and build your confidence when out and about.
