Saturday 13th February Go Kids Go are running a free wheelchair skills training workshop in Wisbech
The workshop is open to young wheelchair users across the region aged 18 months to 18 years.
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 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.
Our patron, Paralympic TV presenter Ade Adeptian 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.
