Objectives

Staines Shopmobility helps people with limited mobility to access shops, banks and other services in Staines town centre. It also enables them to take holidays, go on outings and to visit friends. It does this through the short-term loan of mobility equipment such as wheelchairs and electric mobility scooters. This helps them to participate in activities with friends and carers, reduces their sense of isolation and can lead to improved well-being.  

Activities

The charity hires mobility equipment Monday to Saturday for people to shop locally in Staines town centre; equipment is also available for longer periods under a holiday hire scheme. An escorted shopping service is available for people with a visual impairment on a pre-booked basis. Information is available on products and services relevant to older and/or disabled people.
