Charity information

GET KIDS GOING!

Get Kids Going! Is a disabled children's charity which gives disabled children and young people, up the age of 26yrs, the wonderful opportunity of participating in sport by providing them with sports wheelchairs and sports grants so they can play many different sports such as: wheelchair basketball, tennis, rugby, sailing, equestrian, and many more.

Get Kids Going! Is completely funded by members of the public participating in sporsored events such as the London Marathon. We receive no government or corporate funding whatsoever. The cost of a sports wheelchair is about £3,500 with an sports grant costing from £1,000 per year up to as much as £25,000 per year depending on the sport and their level of ability.

There are over 200,000 disabled children who need the help of Get Kids Going! More importantly we are aware of over 500 talented, disabled, youngsters in the UK who have the ability to participate in the London 2012 Paralympic Games who currently receive little or no funding whatsoever and are completely reliant on financial donations from friends and family.
Currently is a cut in funding of £50 million for such youngsters in the build up to the London 2012 Paralympic Games many of whom will not achieve their dream of participating at London 2012 without the help of Get Kids Going! Please 'help us turn their dreams into reality'.
