Bringing mobility to remote communities

Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population are among the nation’s most marginalised people—and those with a disability are doubly disadvantaged, facing even greater economic inequality and diminished health outcomes.

What’s more, a Sydney University of Technology study found that wheelchairs provided by the federal government’s National Disability Insurance Scheme don’t always cater to the rough terrain and arid conditions where our remote communities are located.

Wheelchairs for Kids are looking to work closely with some remote communities to supply our all-terrain, fully adjustable wheelchairs. Contact the factory on 94093633 if you consider that this type of wheelchair may be required for the extreme Australian conditions.
