Go Kids Go
Go Kids Go are running a free wheelchair mobility-training workshop which is open to all young wheelchair users throughout the region.
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 play wheelchair basketball and try out wheelchair dance.
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. We bring extra chairs so mums, dads and siblings can get involved and join in the games.
Go Kids Go run free manual & powered wheelchair workshops and we also run practical wheelchair skills workshops for professionals and disability awareness workshops in mainstream schools.
Date: Saturday 25 November 2017
Time: 11am - 4pm
