Wheelchair Vouchers, opening up more doors for everyone.
When you realise you need a wheelchair, there are a number of different options available to you. The scheme has been designed to give you a wide range of options with the most flexibility. There are many sites that you can visit to get more information, but this is one that we use:
This site is clear and easy to understand and goes through the three main options:
This site will give you all the information you need.
It is important to note that the voucher is non-taxable and will not affect any disability benefits you receive.
But, everyone is different and a considerable benefit of the voucher scheme is that it can help those people with specific needs get the right wheelchair for them, this can include having additions like seat risers to help you talk to people at eye level.
Please note the NHS won’t necessarily pay for seat risers and other accessories that are not considered essential.
Whilst we believe the voucher scheme is a good one, it can still take time to get your wheelchair.
Wenmans aim to assist and where possible speed up the process to help ensure you get your wheelchair at the earliest possible opportunity.
