QEF provides a unique level of support to disabled people through our connected, expert services. We treat each person as an individual and draw on expertise from our different services to maximise someone's mobility, key life skills and independence.
Clients at our Care and Rehabilitation Centre and residents at our Independent Living Service benefit from our wheelchair passport scheme, provided by occupational therapists at our Mobility Service; helping them to be more mobile and comfortable and highlighting any alternative equipment requirements.
Accredited MIDAS trainers also provide training to Care and Support Workers across QEF, so staff can safely and legally drive clients in wheelchair accessible vehicles, increasing the safety of service users. This training is also available to other care organisations on request.
