Through our partner charity, MERU, we design and manufacture assistive equipment for children and young people with disabilities.
Bugzi, our powered wheelchair for young children, is loaned for free, offering the opportunity to move around independently - often for the first time. This means children can be more active and interactive with their family and friends. To apply for a Bugzi for your child you will need to complete an application form and attend an assessment at one of our many centres across the country. Find out more or you can contact our friendly team at MERU on 01372 725 203 or send them an email.
Useful and fun assitive products

The team at MERU, often supported by fantastic volunteers, can adapt children's favourite toys so they can be used with a wide variety of accessible switches. This means everyone can join in playing, racing cars and moving to music. These toys also teach children ‘cause and effect’ which can be helpful in learning about the world.
You can also buy pre-adapted toys, along with whichever accessible switch is right for your child, direct from MERU. For more information on how to send in your favourite toy or on our range available to buy contact the team by email or call 01372 725 203
