Hi,

On Living Made Easy for children we have a three-wheeled buggies section with a range of prices.

You might also want to read our information on 'charitable funding for children's equipment' which appears on the left handside of the page. (I unable to post links at present.)

Hope this is helpful

Hi, for the second installment..

On Living made easy for children we also have advice on Wheelchair provision of wheelchairs and buggies (via NHS).

You can find this advice either from the Wheelchair section of the site or looking under view all advice under related advice on the left handside of the website. (As currently I am unable to post links)

Hope this is another option.

Hi, my son is 3 in march and has down's syndrome. he cannot walk outside yet and can mange 4 steps about 8 times a day on average in house.
He has bad reflux so needs to sit straight. we walk every where mostly dont have a car. i have asked ot who said they would leave it.
my son breaks pushchairs every few months as he doesnt like going out nor noises when out. i am a single parent on benefits and reduced to spending weeks at home till we can buy what i hope will last him and not break with his trantrums.
we have no support professionally hardly.
can anyone suggest where i could get help of something strong
