Loan a Wizzybug for FREE

We welcome requests from therapists or families. Our Children’s Occupational Therapy team will help you decide whether the Wizzybug might be beneficial for the child. If it seems likely that the Wizzybug will be appropriate, we will send out a referral form to be completed jointly by both the parent and therapist. We will then review your request and source the funding before accepting the child onto the scheme.

When Wizzybug is ready we will contact the family to arrange a convenient appointment at one of the following locations:

  • Designability, Bath
  • The William Merritt Centre, Leeds
  • Mae Murray Foundation, Larne (NI)

We welcome therapists to attend the appointment. The family will be able to take Wizzybug home with them unless any unforeseen issues arise during the assessment.

The Wizzybug Loan Scheme is now using the COPM outcome measures tool.  For further details please visit the COPM website.

Access Fund to assist with travelling costs

We believe that every child who could benefit from a Wizzybug should be able to access one. Thanks to our generous supporters, Designability now offers financial support towards travel costs for attending Wizzybug handover appointments when needed.

To find out more about how we may be able to help, just tick the ‘Access Fund’ box on your referral form and a member of the team will be in touch.
