My name is Carol - I have been a user of a power wheelchair since 2016 due to Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. During this time, I have been complaining about the unfair pricing of disability equipment, and in some cases, the total absence of a piece of equipment, usually due to the fact we are in New Zealand, though sometimes because no one had made it yet (side bag for my power chair is a case in point). I work in a special school, developing and maintaining IT processes and systems.
With my knowledge of what is and isn’t available (or ludicrously overpriced), and my passion to try and level the playing field (where possible) for families living with a disability, Be Free Kiwi was born. I was so certain about what I have to offer, that within 72 hours of first discussing the idea, I had the name, domain name, logo, all social media handles, registered with Companies House, opened a business bank account, and started purchasing stock !!
I want people to be free - and I want to offer products to increase independence, dignity and freedom. Let me know what products you would like to see, and I will try our best to source them, at a fair price.
