Motivation Australia’s spent a week with Timor-Leste’s CNR wheelchair service provision team facilitating a children’s wheelchair clinic.  These clinics are an opportunity to further develop the specific skills and knowledge required to provide an appropriate wheelchair for children who need additional postural support to sit upright (i.e. at an intermediate level).

Motivation Australia’s training team Ray Mines and Lauren Flaherty provided input for six CNR staff members (Wheelchair Technicians and Physiotherapists); this is part of the ongoing technical partnership between our two organisations.
