Rica has launched a national survey for powered wheelchair users and carers to tell about their experiences of obtaining and using their powered wheelchair.
The survey is aimed at wheelchair users living in the UK – including both adults and children – and is being conducted in partnership with the following charities:
- Disability Rights UK
- Muscular Dystrophy Campaign
- Spinal Injuries Association
Powered wheelchair users and carers can tell about their experiences of:
- getting information and advice on choosing a powered wheelchair
- the assessment process
- funding for a powered wheelchair
- maintenance and after-sales service
- any barriers experienced
The aim of the survey is to identify user priorities for future research work.
With a chance to win £50 in shopping vouchers, people can complete the survey here: www.rica.org.uk/PWsurvey
People can also request a print copy from us:
Rica, G03 The Wenlock, 50-52 Wharf Road, London N1 7EU or phone Rica on: 020 7427 2460.
The closing date for the survey is June 30th 2014.
