What we do. Find out about Leicester Wheels for All

One of our client organisations speaks…

Freedom Support Training Academy is a training organisation for young people and adults with learning disabilities and additional support needs. Read on for their piece about their association with Leicester Wheels for All!

Freedom Support have attended every session of Wheels For All, since we first became aware of it. It quickly became one of our most popular activities.

At Freedom, we have a varied group of Market Harborough clients with Learning disabilities, Physical Disabilities and Mental Health needs. Wheels For All caters for every individual no matter what support they may need. And the staff love it too!

As a support worker, there is nothing more important than seeing a client happy, and wheels for all achieves this every time. I cannot stress how important events like this are for our clients and the community. Myself, the team and the clients would love to attend this event on a more regular basis. Every time we go, the group gets larger and even members of the public stop to have a go, or just watch the sheer enjoyment our clients are having.

Hayley – of Freedom Support Training Academy

I would like to thank Peter Simmonds and his wonderful team for making this event possible and contributing to the wellbeing of Freedom Support clients (and staff!).
