Free Wheelchair Skills Workshop

Go Kids Go have been running wheelchair skills training for young wheelchair users since 1990; training designed to enable independence and to help ensure that the young people are able to reach their full potential. Ade Adepitan MBE, the TV presenter, learnt wheelchair skills with us as a young man and is now a patron of Go Kids Go. We run workshops for manual and powered wheelchair users. We bring extra wheelchairs so that parents, siblings and friends can join in with the activities. We also run disability/wheelchair awareness workshops in mainstream schools for pupils and staff.
