What is Swindon Shopmobility?

Swindon’s Shopmobility scheme is available for anyone with limited mobility and provides a selection of manually-propelled and battery-powered wheelchairs and scooters. These are provided to help people with mobility difficulties when using the facilities in Swindon’s town centre.

The unit is staffed and has a waiting area with accessible toilet facilities nearby.

Available equipment includes:

  • Mobility scooters

  • Manual wheelchairs

 

Anyone with limited mobility, whether through permanent or temporary disability, illness, accident or age, can use the scheme. Persons under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult or carer.
