The Wheelchair Service, based at the Peckwater Centre, supplies wheelchairs, seating and accessories for children and adults. Mobility and postural assessments are completed. Where necessary, the service is able to design and provide customised seating and wheelchair modifications for users with very complex physical and psychosocial needs.

Drop-in clinics are available for existing clients on Wednesday 9.30am-4pm. (Please note: these have been paused due to Covid-19.)
