Action For Kids
Action For Kids’ vision is a world where disabled children and young people lead lives more like others their age. We help and empower individuals by providing life changing mobility equipment, plus employment and training opportunities.
Science and engineering student, Dan, whose story you hear in our Radio 4 Appeal, has Duchenne muscular dystrophy which will slowly cause his muscles to fatally weaken. He needs a new wheelchair as his old one breaks down a lot.
With a focus on a disabled young person’s potential to benefit from support, not the apparent barriers they face, Action for Kids provides what individuals need to get where they want to be.
Independence & Choices
When five-year-old Izzy, who has cerebral palsy, received the mobility trike she wanted, her dad Graham told us how much it meant to Izzy and the whole family:
‘The trike is massively improving Izzy’s confidence, independence and strength, plus she’s able to ride alongside her younger sister now. Thank you!’
