The WheelchairSkillsTeam is a foundation with the aim of making a positive impact in the independence of physically disabled people of all ages. They also want to work on improving the perceived image of people with disabilities in society. They do this by giving wheelchair skills training to children and adults, providing guest classes, workshops & clinics, giving lectures and presentations and by organizing and participating in events.
Supporting wheelchair users and raising awareness in society
The WheelchairSkillsTeam’s mission is to support wheelchair users and to raise awareness in society so that everyone can participate and contribute equally. The team is committed to teaching wheelchair users both mental and physical skills that they can use in everyday life. They also work to make non-wheelchair users aware of the limitations of wheelchair users, but they also want to show them (all) the possibilities.
Supporting wheelchair users is something the WheelchairSkillsTeam and Vicair have in common, which is why we are proud sponsor of this good initiative and are we happy to contribute and help where needed.
