Watch the video to discover how our support is helping Whizz-Kidz transform the lives of young wheelchair users like Scott and Sally

Whizz-Kidz is a leading disabled children’s charity which transforms the lives of young wheelchair users by providing them with the equipment, support and skills they need to reach their full potential.

Over the years we have donated over £130,000 to Whizz-Kidz in support of their Mobility Therapists and work placement programmes. Last year, Whizz-Kidz named the Masonic Charitable Foundation as one of its top supporters.

In our latest video, we visit Whizz-Kidz to see one of their sessions in action. Scott and Sally are just two of the many young people who have benefited from the charity’s Ambassadors Club; the charity has given them greater independence and is helping them access opportunities in the wider world.

Watch the video to discover the impact that our grant is having for people like Scott and Sally.
