Wheelchair services

From what I’ve been told a child is not eligible for an NHS wheelchair until between 3 and 5 years depending on location. However, they can provide pushchairs for children below this age. We are currently looking into sourcing a powered wheelchair for Helena as we feel she should not have to wait till 3-5 years to be able to have the ability to mobilise independently. She is and obviously will be dependent on other people, but I personally feel I would like to give her as many opportunities as possible to be as independent as she can be.
