Wheelfever Project: The power of dance!

Wheelfever Projects in Plymouth were awarded £22,083 by People’s Health Trust using money raised by Health Lottery South West.

This two-year project will develop an existing service, providing weekly dance sessions for young people with disabilities, and their siblings and friends in Plymouth. The development will ensure participants can enjoy the health and social benefits of belonging to a dance group, build their confidence as they demonstrate their abilities through their performances and be part of a group which is inclusive of young people with and without disabilities.
