Cornwall ShopMobility UK
ShopMobility UK is a nationwide network of centres which hire out mobility equipment to the public. This equipment is mainly manual wheelchairs, powerchairs and mobility scooters so people with restricted mobility can enjoy independence outdoors.
Hire services are low cost or sometimes free to all ages of people looking to access shops and leisure facilities.
ShopMobility is not only for elderly individuals or people with chronic disabilities. It provides support for those restricted by temporarily illness or injury. Maybe you have broken your leg or have strength problems after an operation? Do you have a child with disabilities who needs pushing in a wheelchair? Or simply you may find walking longer distances difficult.
Whatever your need, each centre is ready to help you access your local shops and facilities with appropriate mobility equipment.
Operated by Falmouth Town Council, the centre loans manual and power wheelchairs, as well as mobility scooters. Costs apply.
