Whizz Kidz: the facts
Over 75,000 young people aren’t getting the wheelchair or support that fully meets their needs.
Without the ability to be independent young wheelchair users are restricted in their ability to socialise and participate in society.
We’re here to change that.
As the UK’s leading charity for young wheelchair users (9 months -25 years old), we empower young people by providing the wheelchairs, equipment, support and confidence-building experiences they need, and campaigning for a more inclusive society.
And we won’t stop until they are mobile, enabled and included.
This role will work alongside the Support Officer in Scotland with the effective planning and delivery of services to meet the strategic objectives. The postholder will be required to work directly with young people and their families delivering services in Scotland, alongside assisting the wider Scotland team in the administrative tasks involved in organising and setting up services and events.
You will be responsible for the planning and delivery of services in and around Aberdeen, as well as supporting colleagues in all aspects of researching, organising, and booking activities and events for disabled children, young people and their families in Scotland. You will need to have good organisational skills with the ability to communicate and build rapport with a range of audiences. You will be liaising with our young people and families as well as venues, schools, content providers and other third-party organisations. With a good understanding of planning events and undertaking risk management, you will be responsible for all aspects of event bookings.
You will be part of the Young People’s Services Team who provide a range of services and activities for young wheelchair users and their families.
