Shopmobility is a nationwide scheme that lends manual wheelchairs, powered wheelchairs, and scooters to people with limited mobility, thus allowing them to shop and visit leisure and commercial facilities within a town, city or shopping centre.
The scheme is open to anyone with mobility impairments, be it permanent or temporary. Each local scheme operates slightly differently; some provide Shopmobility as a free service while others make a charge.
