Providing mobility equipment for disabled children and young people

Man in a powered wheelchair in a park

my AFK provides mobility equipment not available on the NHS, such as bespoke powered wheelchairs, specialised trikes and walkers, to disabled children and young people up to age 25.

The right piece of equipment can mean the difference between playing outside with friends or watching from the sidelines; between working and going to college or relying on others for everything. It can help with pain management, muscle strength and independence.

 

For 26 years we have been committed to providing those pieces of equipment which cannot easily be obtained elsewhere.

 

Our team will accept applications from or on behalf of anyone up to the age of 25 who cannot get the mobility equipment they need on the NHS.
