    Hi @Khuluwa21

    Welcome to the community. Where do you live?

    There is some information about getting a wheelchair here.

    Hi @Khuluwa21
    Welcome, sorry no idea about sponsorship.. Good you say more. Like what you are hoping to do study wise? 

    In terms of wheelchair, I assume from your picture that you have a wheelchair? What do you want to improve on? (love  a good wheelchair chat me!) 

    My 3 routes of obtaining chairs were:

    Loan off British red cross (temporarily) 

    NHS route - referred by gp, waited, got appointments, was assessed for needs, wheelchair built to my spec.... Lots of waiting.... Got great manual wheelchair

    Motobility - we decided it was easier for us to get power chair thrpugh motobility, through higher level PIP mobility.  I know most get car but we decided to adapt current car/ buy with loan from secondhand converted car dealer and get wheelchair through motobility as I wanted 's high cost chair. I adore it, has changed my life.... 

    What about you, what do you need/want?
