Funding now available for disabled tricycles

Have your say

A national children’s charity is calling on the parents of disabled children in Sheffield to come forward, after a generous donation of life-changing equipment.

Caudwell Children, which provides practical and emotional support for disabled children and their families, has received funding to supply four life-enhancing therapy tricycles.

The charity is now appealing for families to come forward and apply for the equipment - before the funding is withdrawn next month.

The tricycles - costing between £800 and £1,500 - are individually designed to meet the needs of each disabled child and help provide physiotherapy, build muscle tone and promote play.

They also help benefit growth and development in children with disabilities, enabling them to keep active and retain their independence.

Trudi Beswick, chief executive of Caudwell Children, said: “We donate hundreds of life-changing therapy tricycles to disabled children in the UK each year, but we currently have no applicants in West Yorkshire and Sheffield.
