Southend Wheelchair Service, Specialist Seating and Mobility Needs


The Wheelchair Service provides the framework to clinically assess, and then provide appropriate wheelchairs with associated equipment to clients with long-term mobility needs. Once provision is established, the Wheelchair Service supports the equipment provided and continues to review the clients’ needs.

Service Information

Equipment provided includes; manual wheelchairs, indoor powered wheelchairs, indoor/outdoor wheelchairs, buggies and pressure care cushions for wheelchairs.

Clients are offered a choice of Personal Wheelchair Budget as part of the intervention process.

Clients with more complex needs may be referred to special seating, or have specialist seating company assessing/supplying equipment.

We are working in partnership with Whizzkids charity for the provision of children’s wheelchairs for those up to the age of 26 years.

If you need to arrange a repair of your wheelchair you will need to contact  our approved repair contractors, DGT.
