Ciaran's Standing Wheelchair Fund!

£970 of £20,000 goal

Raised by 28 people in 39 months

Hi there! I’m Ciaran. That’s me in the picture. I live in Leeds, England and have a condition known as Cerebral Palsy. It’s a disability that’s different for everyone who has it, and for me it means my mobility is severely limited. 


Standing and walking are impossible for me, and I have to use a wheelchair to maintain some level of comfort and independence. As a result, I literally spend all day every day in a sitting position.


I’m hoping to raise enough money for a standing wheelchair like the one in the video above. A wheelchair like this would give me the freedom to move around and stand up on my own at the touch of a button. 


The health benefits of standing regularly - such as improved blood circulation and reduced risk of pressure sores - are invaluable to me. Standing also has numerous practical and psychological advantages, and the ability to do it by myself would have a hugely positive impact on my quality of life. 

Specialist equipment is harder to secure into adulthood, so I’m turning to gofundme and the power of the internet for help.


I'll be reaching out to charities and other funding sources during my campaign, and posting updates along the way.


Please support me if you can, and share my story with as many people as possible.

Thank you.
