Freedom Wheelchair Skills

Stuart Wheeler, 47-year-old paraplegic, post thirty years. I am married with a son. Enjoying the great outdoors, my wheelchair skills have given me the advantage of accessing some places that otherwise may not be available for me to get to. After several jobs, one of which was working for a Spinal Injury Charity and developing a wheelchair skills programme with them, I realised there was a need for wheelchair skills for a broader range of people. Never having run a business before, I reached out to people I know for advice, and after web design and speaking to solicitors, I decided to launch Freedom Wheelchair Skills. I take pride in my training with experience, knowledge and care.

This is why I have started up Freedom Wheelchair Skills.
