There is a website called special needs pushchair that might help. Many children I work with have a major McLaren buggy but there are some three wheelers on the site as well. In our area there is also a charity that buys items for children that will enhance their life so it might be worth seeing if there is something in your area that will help. The charity near us do not means test.

The major doesn't recline. Its main advantage is price and availability.

Caudwell children provide buggies for children with autism. The earned houehold income by parents has to be less than £45K p.a.

I can't find the specific ones offered on their website, but if you contact them they have a list of pros and cons for a few of them.

As he's 6 is there anyway your local wheelchair services would help?

(Caudwell children will provide buggies for all sort of conditions as well as autism)

cerebra might be worth contacting for advice on buggies:

w3.cerebra.org.uk/help-and-information/grants/

Newlife might be worth checking out too:

Shiney I think the "Ormesa Bug* is terrific. Sadly DD far too lanky. Our local wheelchair services provide them free. It reclines and looks very comfy.

We have got a tomato EIO pushchair following a baby jogger. It's still fairly bulky, fits in my megane with no parcel shelf, i didn't check whether they offer any other colours than a beige ( and black) but needless to say gets dirty quickly . +s Easy to push, easy to fold down, comfy for child, feels sturdy / good quality. Any specific questions I will try and answer

Hi, my DD was given a Swifty special needs buggy when she was 5. It reclines a bit and quite easy to handle. We prefer our Alvema ITO which we self funded. It's a great pushchair,folds down easily,not too heavy. It doesn't lie flat but enough for a nap. Hope you'll fond what suits you best.
