Wheelchair Mobility-Training Workshop
Avonmouth & Kingsweston
Saturday 22nd July 10am to 2.30pm
Go Kids Go
On the workshop we teach skills such as coping with slopes and rough ground, back wheel balancing, road safety and emergency evacuation techniques. We also introduce games like wheelchair basketball and try out wheelchair dance. We bring extra chairs so mums, dads and siblings can get involved and join in the games. Whilst the objectives are serious the workshops are good fun! The young people will need to be able to self propel to gain fully from the workshop however we often have a mixed range of abilities and find that everyone gains some new skills from the workshops. We have had children as young as 2 years of age on our workshops and welcome young people up to the age of 21.
Our patron, Paralympic TV presenter Ade Adepitan MBE was one of the first young wheelchair users to come on one of our courses and he is now a great role model for a lot of the children who currently attend our workshops.
