WheelPower - British Wheelchair Sport, help people with disabilities improve their quality of life through sport. Often at a time when there are many negative things in a persons life, sport is a positive. By focussing on something they can do, and potentially excel in, increased confidence and a positive outlook can be achieved which can influence other areas of life.
