    Hi Kirstie. Have you asked your local wheel chair service? They usually provide things like Maclaren Majors or Do Buggys. Ask your daughters GP, occupational therapist or school nurse if they could refer you.

    Charities like Family Fund don't usually pay for buggies :( 

    If you are in urgent need there are a lot of used ones on eBay or SEN Equipment groups on Facebook e.g

    Hi Kirstie
    If you click on the following link it will take you to a website which lists charities and trusts which might help with giving a grant towards this:
    http://www.disability-grants.org/
    If you have a local Dial group [disability advice group] they might help you with doing the application or alternatively check out your local Carers Centre which also might help out with any applications to charities  [and make sure you register yourself as a carer in case you can get any extra support in looking after your daughter].
    I hope this helps.
    Jackie
