Go Kids Go! was formerly known as Association of Wheelchair Children which in turn came out of The Newham Rollers  - a local activities group for wheelchair-using children, which operated in the East End of London in the late 1980’s.

As news about its work spread, founder Owen McGhee (BSc, MCSP, SRP) who was the Senior Community Paediatric Physiotherapist for the Newham Health Authority, identified a national need for these specialist wheelchair services. In 1990 AWC became a registered national charity and since that time has helped literally thousands of wheelchair-using children and their families.

From these humble beginnings, the charity has grown to extend its reach across the whole of the UK and Ireland. There is still a small team of dedicated people at its helm, but with the assistance of volunteers, Go Kids Go! are able to bring their unique, practical and fun training programmes to young wheelchair-users free of charge.
