Meadows Shopmobility is a charity that provides mobility scooters, powered and manual wheelchairs and rollators to anyone of any age with a permanent or temporary mobility problem. You do not have to be registered as a disabled person and there is no upper age limit, although powered appliances can only be loaned to persons under 16 if they are accompanied by a responsible adult.

Regain your confidence, independence and freedom
It is also possible to hire one of our fleet for longer periods of time for if you are going on holiday or expecting a time of reduced mobility around the home. They will fold to go in the average car boot quite easily.
Our volunteers will ensure you can operate the appliance in a safe manner, providing explanation and help where needed.
