Have you ever pushed a wheelchair? Have you ever used one yourself?

Until recently my only experience of wheelchairs was for a speedy dash from our car to the labour ward; fourteen years ago thanks to a convenient wheelchair my daughter was born in a bed and not in the hospital car park.

Then last year my dad's declining health and my determination that he should be able to 'get out and about' as much as possible meant I became more familiar with wheelchairs and some of the issues users face.

The best place for children to learn about road safety is... outside of course!  By also making it into a fun event involving the whole school it's more memorable which helps the serious messages to stick.

And for your school you don't even need to plan it from scratch; road safety charity Brake have set up a great event for you this June!

Find out more about their Kids Walk 2018 and how your school can join in.
