This November, WheelPower have launched a new campaign ‘Get Active with WheelPower this Winter’ to support disabled people to stay active through the upcoming winter months. Over the last 18 months in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, WheelPower has created a series of new digital resources to support disabled people across the UK to stay active at home. Now with winter on its way, they are relaunching their full programme of online content to raise awareness of the charity and the importance of being active. 

WheelPower's Head of Sport, Emily Weller said:

"During the winter period it can be more difficult for disabled people to maintain their fitness and access physical activity. The change in the weather and the dark evenings mean that we all spend more time at home and are looking for new ways to exercise. This winter we are delighted to reintroduce you to the online resources from WheelPower, to help you get through the next few months." 

Live online exercise classes

Look out for WheelPower's live online exercise classes. They deliver three classes via Zoom each week. These classes were designed to support disabled people to exercise during a very difficult time, and although many restrictions have now been lifted they continue to be incredibly popular. All of WheelPower's live online classes are free of charge and are delivered by our wonderful team of instructors - Ben Clark, Ella Beaumont and Nina Boswell-Brown.
