The event, run in partnership with NHS services, Imps in the Community, Millbrook Healthcare, The Motor Neurone Disease Association and Wiltshire Farm Foods is a chance for people to give feedback and help to develop services for wheelchair users in their area.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to be part of the pilot for new personal health wheelchair budgets, designed to give people more choice and control over their care and support.

There is practical help available with a wheelchair workshop running throughout the session for on the spot repairs and information on personal health budgets for wheelchairs. There will also be a chance to meet local providers and other organisations supporting wheelchair users.

Programme Manager, Anil Garcia, said: “This is a great opportunity for wheelchair users and carers to shape services relevant to them and to get practical help and information.

“We hope as many people as possible take up the offer and we look forward to hearing people’s feedback so we can help in a way that is centered on them.”

The event is open to all wheelchair users and carers and entry is free of charge, with the added incentive of free mince pies, tea and coffee.

The wheelchair users information and engagement event takes place this coming Saturday 2nd December between 10am-2pm at the Travis Perkins Suite, Lincoln City Football Club, Queen Street, Lincoln. LN5 8LD. Parking is free onsite.
