What is Shopmobility?
Shopmobility is a service that helps all people who consider themselves to have mobility problems (whether through disability, illness or injury) to continue to get around city and town centres independently, with freedom, confidence and dignity.
Why use Shopmobility?
Everyday activities such as shopping or travelling can often present difficult challenges for those with mobility issues; sometimes because of a lack of facilities, sometimes because of attitudes and lack of understanding of others. Shopmobility enables people with mobility problems to conduct themselves around town in their own time and use all kinds of services without having to rely on friends or family.

Anyone who considers themselves to have problems with mobility due to injury or disability, whether short or long term, can use Shopmobility to access shops and other services in the town or city centre.
Please note: you do NOT have to be registered as disabled, have a blue badge, or be in receipt of disability benefits to take advantage of any Shopmobility service.
