The following resources will tell you more about the experiences of children with disabilities and their carers, including those living in South Africa. We support all who uphold the rights of children with disabilities to a fair chance to survive, thrive, receive protection and participate in the community on an equal basis.

Having a special concern for children who need posture support and wheelchairs, it is important to understand what an ‘appropriate’ wheelchair is, and how this enables the first step towards participation in society. The ‘appropriate’ wheelchair, when provided within systems aligned with best practice in wheelchair provision, may improve the quality of life for people with mobility impairments.
