New free app has launched

Whizz-Kidz, a charity which supports disabled children, has launched a free iPhone and Android App which will allow young wheelchair users to gain mobility equipment more quickly and gain access to information about training and work opportunities.

The app contains a link to the online application process, reducing the need for clinic appointments. Users will also be able to find fundraising or volunteering opportunities by location.

Whizz-Kidz CEO, Ruth Owen OBE, said: “There are an estimated 70,000 disabled children and young people in the UK currently waiting for appropriate mobility equipment, so it is vital that we use all available channels to reach them. At Whizz-Kidz, we are relentlessly focussed on our users and the App is the latest in a series of Whizz-Kidz innovations which seeks to give disabled kids the childhood they deserve and a future full of potential.”
