AFFORDABLE SCOOTER AND WHEELCHAIR HIRE*
SERVICE FOR THE DISABLED
We aim to provide affordable hire of mobility scooters and wheelchairs on a hire* basis to disabled people in immediate need.
We are a registered charity run by a small group of volunteers, whose role is to support the disabled community by means of helping them to overcome mobility problems.
Experience has shown that the use of mobility scooters can give a disabled person a sense of independence and help them integrate into the local community.
We make an operational and safety assessment for each hiring to help ensure the health and safety of the client, who signs a legally binding loan document.

During our closure with covid restrictions we were able to have a new ramp put in to make access into our office more user friendly. It was so good when we were able to allow our members back in to see us. Thank you for your continued support.
We lost one of our colleagues who was very dear to us.
