The Wheelchair Charter

The Wheelchair Charter is a set of 6 principles that seek to ensure that everyone who needs a wheelchair gets one, and no one is left without the equipment they need because of where they live.

The Wheelchair Charter applies to:

  • NHS provided and commissioned wheelchair services (specialist professionals who provide wheelchairs via NHS referral) and
  • Private and independent suppliers of wheelchair services.
