The Movement for Non-mobile Projects

Wheeling for Independence

By project’s end, 300 disabled children will have the skills they need to use their wheelchairs more independently. This unlocks countless opportunities to learn, make friends and be active which, since March 2020, so many have been without. The charity will run new sessions in Scotland and Wales, and train 40 new practitioners, so no young wheelchair user is left behind.

Deafblind UK

Fitting In and Standing Out

Marginalised, isolated, dreading going to school - welcome to life for a 14-year-old with dual sensory loss. Vulnerable due to their deafblindness, these children find their challenges compounded by a lack of understanding from teachers and peers, and an absence of support provision from local authorities. Deaflblind UK aim to change that through an innovative research project conducted in schools that will enhance understanding of dual sensory loss.
