WheelPower provides accessible facilities for a wide range of disabilities at the Stoke Mandeville Stadium, Buckinghamshire. UK, the birthplace of the Paralympic Movement.

Each year WheelPower introduces over 1,000 disabled people to sport and enables over 5,000 to participate regularly through a range of sporting programmes.

Wheel AppealBefore a disabled person can start thinking about which sport to play, where to play it or even what to wear, they need to overcome their biggest barrier and find a suitable sports wheelchair. It costs around £3,000 to provide a disabled person with a suitable sports wheelchair for their chosen sport, training and ongoing support to get them active, playing sport and lead healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives. All donations to our Wheel Appeal will help the charity provide opportunities for disabled people to lead healthy, active lives.

We are working to support this great campaign with the Wheel Appeal fundraising team and would be delighted to hear from anyone who can assist our efforts.

2012-13 was an exciting year for WheelPower and the world of Paralympic and disability sport.  WheelPower’s Impact Report WheelPower Impact Report - 2013/2013 reflects some of the wonderful work which enabled the charity to help transform the lives of disabled children and adults through sport.
