Many thanks for the advice, we knew a bit about the voucher scheme but didn't look any further as he was growing (still is, only 10yrs old). and we where new to all of it, that and operations and stuff made just saying yes ok.
(withing reason, we have pushed and asked lots of questions and had alterations and the OT is actually very good, she used to work for Wheelchair services,so knows how to get stuff and what is not right).

We'll have a look again as this chair needs some servicing as it collapsing under use and the tyre now rub the side.
I just noticed a wheel is wobbling and I think it's the 'whatever you called it' but that the wheel clicks into.

Axle sleeve or receiver...Something like this?

Should just need to tighten the nut up on the back.
If the wheel still rubs, the sleeve can be adjusted outwards, but needs spacers like ahead spacers, only smaller under the head of the sleeve.

Spare parts pdf here. and Service manual.

The chair itself can be grown in length and width (see Service Manual), but there are also forward extended front castor mounts available if front stability is a problem as he grows (Front Stabilizer Kit, Parts, Page 13).
Also, the back brace makes a huge difference to the rigidity and ease of pushing the chair, if you don't already have one (Parts, Page 90).

All the best,
