Wizzybug is the fun and innovative powered wheelchair for children under five. We run a charitable loan scheme which provides Wizzybugs FREE to children who can benefit all over the UK.  As a registered charity, we fundraise to provide Wizzybug powered wheelchairs.

Families can have a Wizzybug for as long as the child can benefit (this is usually until they outgrow it) and when they have completed their loan, they return their Wizzybug and we refurbish it for another family.

To start the process, please contact our Occupational Therapists, Rae Baines or Susanna Gaertner, who will work with you and your referring therapist to determine if Wizzybug would be suitable for your child.

If you are accepted onto the scheme, you will need to come to Bath (or our Outreach Centre in Leeds) to collect your Wizzybug.
