A decade of providing children with free, powered Wizzybug wheelchairs

This year our Wizzybug Loan Scheme turns 10 years old and we would like to invite you all to celebrate with us!

Helping nearly 1,000 children to access their first taste of independence

We never knew back in 2011 just what the Wizzybug Loan Scheme would become. We couldn’t have imagined that it would grow to the size it is today.

As of now, we have helped over 923 children to access the freedom and independence of powered mobility. That means that we are likely to reach the 1,000th loan sometime in the next 12 months.

Despite all the difficulties we are facing, we think this is cause to celebrate!

Our anniversary celebrations

Throughout the year, we will be sharing the history and people behind the loan scheme. From the team and funders who helped to set it up, to the families who have benefitted from it.

We also hope to host some celebratory events and, with any hope, these might be in person, rather than via screens.

Stay tuned each month as we share snapshots about a charity service that has filled a gap for so many and given hundreds of disabled children the opportunity to express themselves in ways they were never able to before.
