DID YOU KNOW?
A standard wheelchair in Canada costs on average $2,500. Because of their high price point, there is a lack of affordable mobility devices for those rejected from government funding.
Many Canadians who do not meet the strict requirements to quality for provincial subsidies (ADP) cannot afford to purchase a new device. Even for those who do qualify, the subsidy only covers 75% of the cost of a new chair and many citizens cannot afford the client portion that can be upwards of $600+.
So on one hand, thousands of Canadians who need wheelchairs cannot afford them
Meanwhile, tens of thousands of wheelchairs go into disuse every year in Canada - that's over 4,000 devices in the London Middlesex area alone! These devices often end up in landfills or collect dust in the basement of community homes because there are few places that accept device donations.
On the other end, thousands of gently used devices collect dust in storage or are thrown out each year.
ROLLUP BRIDGES THIS GAP.
RollUP Solutions is a student-run non profit that strives to remove social and physical barriers by providing mobility devices that are affordable for all. At RollUP we collect gently used devices from the community, work with our partners at Goodwill to refurbish them and we sell or donate them to those in financial need.
HOW YOU CAN HELP.
Give hope, freedom, and independence through the gift of a wheelchair. Every $70 donated provides a wheelchair to someone in need by covering the up-cycling and delivery cost.
If you have a gently used wheelchair or walker, we would love to accept the equipment and get it into the hands of someone who needs it!
