Move a life forward

Whizz-Kidz empowers young disabled people to reach their full potential by providing them with the equipment, skills and support they need – when they need them.

Our work together

Whizz-Kidz and National Express have been working closely together since the launch of the Youth Promise Initiative in 2014; ensuring that young disabled people have access to work and education opportunities and to good value accessible travel.

Over the last two years staff at National Express have volunteered at Work Skills Days; helping young people develop CV writing skills and interview techniques and they’ve hosted Work Placements at a number of coach stations; giving young disabled people tangible experience and the chance to gain skills and confidence.

National Express is also a member of Whizz-Kidz’s Accessible Travel Alliance – a group of forward-thinking travel operators supporting Whizz-Kidz’s Get on Board campaign and spearheading improvements in accessible travel. One of Whizz-Kidz’s young ambassadors, Helen, even starred in a driver training video, helping teach drivers how to operate the wheelchair lift on the National Express fleet!

"Whizz-Kidz believes that every young disabled person has the right to a fun and active childhood, and the chance to develop their full potential in life. We provide disabled children and young people with vital mobility equipment and life journey services, including youth clubs, wheelchair skills training, residential camps and work placements, giving them opportunities to build friendships and have fun, and training to help them gain skills and look forward to a bright future."
