Thank you, firstly we would assess all of the children and determine the required sizes and required types of wheelchair, in terms of level of postural support. We would then cross check what is available and what is needed. –

If we know more wheelchairs are coming, we can consider who has travelled the farthest and give them priority, and indeed also put the remaining children into a wheelchair waiting list. Further from that, priority for the posture control wheelchairs would be given to those with most complex needs first, and of course, in the right size. The more able bodied would be the lower priority, in terms of the postural control wheelchairs.

Of course chairs that offer less support would be given to children with perhaps the greatest chance for independent mobility / self propulsion.

We also consider if they are in school / potentially active in the community and where the wheelchair will be used.
