We believe passionately that everyone should be independently mobile to allow them to make their own choices and develop their skills and potential to the full, from the earliest possible age. We fund specialised powerchairs for those who need them.
The Turbo Trust is devoted to the task of providing really effective powerchairs for severely disabled people. We want to give such people access from the ground up to enable them to reach high surfaces as well as looking others squarely in the eye. The people we help may need customised seating or controls.
We believe that this kind of equipment can be the key to achieving God-given potential, at all ages, from the toddler to the elder. If given at the earliest possible moment in a child’s life, it can avoid secondary disabilities, physical, emotional and social, and give new hope to the whole family.
By helping people to buy the best, we also want to encourage designers of powerchairs to develop and create the best possible alternatives to normal bodily movement on wheels.
