WheelPower is the national charity for wheelchair sport based at Stoke Mandeville Stadium, the Birthplace of the Paralympic Movement. Our mission is to support disabled people to lead healthier and more active lives by creating new opportunities for them to access sport and physical activity. The Covid-19 pandemic, unfortunately, led to the cancellation of our in-person events so in response we have considerably expanded our digital offer to help disabled people of all ages to exercise from home. Since March 2020 we have created over 40 Online Workout videos and now host 3 live exercise classes per week from Yoga to Cardio sessions. The charity has also gifted over 450 sets of resistance bands to people throughout the UK to support them to maintain fitness during this extended period of isolation.
