Wakefield Shopmobility

A picture for Wakefield-Shopmobility

The aim of Wakefield Shopmobility is to promote equality of access and to encourage independence of people with disabilities (permanent or temporary), through the provision of mobility equipment such as scooters, wheelchairs and powerchairs. Shopmobility unlocks many access barriers faced by people with a disability, and the network of schemes throughout the UK gives people the confidence to travel, safe in the knowledge that friendly help and assistance will be available at the end of their journey.

Wakefield Shopmobility is a scheme which loans manual wheelchairs, powered wheelchairs and powered scooters to members of the public with limited mobility to shop and to visit leisure and commercial facilities within the city centre and the Ridings shopping centre.

Shopmobility is for anyone, young or old, whether their disability is temporary or permanent. It is available for those with injuries, long or short-term disabilities anyone who needs help with mobility. Shopmobility is about the freedom to get around. You do not need to be registered disabled.
