Constrained by storage and supply rather than demand, this programme is slightly smaller that the programme operated from St Andrew’s Hospice but none the less essential. This mobility aids programme provides, again on a lend lease basis, walking aids and wheelchairs for children who otherwise would be housebound. Some referrals come from the staff of St Nicholas CDC and relate primarily to children with severe motor problems. The wheelchairs improve mobility and increase contact with the CDC.  Other referrals come from paediatric hospitals and clinics that are unable to supply wheelchairs to meet the specific or specialised needs of children with severe disabilities.
