Buggies for Children

Children, whose clinical needs cannot be met by a regular wheelchair, can have a buggy.

A double buggy is available if both children have a disability. Each child is also entitled to a single buggy.

Where only one child meets the criteria, a Personal Wheelchair Budget (PWB) can be used as an option to obtain a double buggy in place on an individual buggy. The PWB buggy chosen by the family must meet the postural needs of the disabled child requiring wheelchair provision and accommodate the weight of both children.
