Wheelchair and specialist seating

We help people who have mobility and postural seating needs.

Our service is for adults and children over 2 years old who need a wheelchair or buggy for more than 6 months.

We assess, prescribe and fit wheelchairs and buggies to meet individual needs.

We'll work with you to find the best solution. This can include buggies and manual or powered wheelchairs. We provide this equipment on a long-term loan.

We also fit a range of supportive cushions, backrests and accessories. We can custom-make these items in some cases.

We offer personal wheelchair budgets for most new wheelchair prescriptions.
