Designability

Designability is a charity that enables disabled people to live with greater independence

Designability provide Wizzybug powered wheelchairs free of charge on loan to families throughout the UK. Wizzybug is designed specifically for children from 14months to approx age 5 providing independence, choice and fun. It is suitable for children with a range of conditions that affect their mobility and unlocks the potential for the child's development through independent movement. Wizzybug is provided free of charge on loan until the child outgrows it when it is returned to us to be refurbished ready for another family to enjoy. Families can self-refer to the scheme using the application form on our website. Families on low income can request assistance with the cost of attending their appointment by applying to our Access Fund Scheme. Wizzybug appointments are held at our clinics at our HQ in Bath, at the William Merritt Centre in Leeds and Mae Murray Foundation in Northern Ireland.
