"Wheels for Freedom' is an independent registered charity that is dedicated to giving freedom of movement to those with a walking difficulty. They operate over 100 power-chairs and scooters plus twenty hand-propelled wheelchairs that are available on a daily basis. Yearly they provide day or longer-term loans to well over 500 members and 1000 day visitors. They have a highly successful Mobile Division that provides mobility for their members at many popular public events and places of interest.
Although they receive grants in aid from the Borough of Poole and other Local Authorities whose areas they serve, they are an independent Charity that has to raise 70% of its funds from donations and fund-raising events.
