Parents in Wheelchairs
When I was pregnant, I was concerned about how I would cope being a Mum with a spinal injury. There didn't seem to be much information or accounts of how other Mums have coped. Even after Sarah was born, I found it hard to imagine being able to manage once she was heavier/more mobile etc
I have created this website to share my experiences with other people and hope that parents (or those considering becoming parents) with a disability will find it useful and/or interesting.www.parentsinwheelchairs.com
Freedom Wheelchair Skills
Stuart has been teaching people the fundamentals of using a wheelchair for 12 years, which has encouraged them to lead more independent lives. "I have been approached by wheelchair users with a range of disabilities in my community, and asked if I could teach them wheelchair skills. I have come to realise there are many more wheelchair users in the country that don’t get the benefits of peer-led wheelchair skills training – this is why I have started up Freedom Wheelchair Skills".
My aim is to develop the skills and confidence of people who need a wheelchair for their mobility, to enable them to lead more independent lives and get out there!
