A national survey (www.rica.org.uk/PWsurvey) - launched by Rica, the specialist UK consumer research and information charity, gives powered wheelchair users and carers a chance to tell about their experiences of obtaining and using their powered wheelchair.

The survey aimed at wheelchair users living in the UK – including both adults and children – is being conducted in partnership with the following charities:


Disability Rights UK
Muscular Dystrophy Campaign
Scope
Spinal Injuries Association
Whizz-Kidz

Powered wheelchair users can tell about their experiences of:


getting information and advice on choosing a powered wheelchair
the assessment process
funding for a powered wheelchair
maintenance and after-sales service
any barriers experienced

The aim of the survey is to identify user priorities for future research work.

With a chance to win £50 in shopping vouchers, people can complete the survey here: www.rica.org.uk/PWsurvey or request a print copy from Rica, G03 The Wenlock, 50-52 Wharf Road, London N1 7EU or phone Rica on: 020 7427 2460.
