Shopmobility is located on Level 1 of the car park.
Their service enables easier mobility in Ilford in the following ways:
1) Providing powered wheelchairs or scooters and even manual wheelchairs for use around the town centre for anyone with permanent or temporary mobility difficulties.
2) Sometimes providing escorts to assist you.
3) Shopmobility is simple and cheap: £2 for members (£10 annual membership fee) and £5 for non-members.
4) Manual wheelchairs are available for holiday hire (ask for details).
Once you have registered, a member of staff will talk to you about what sort of vehicle you require, and what you will feel comfortable using.
Staff at the scheme will then give training. When you feel confident, and the staff are happy that you are in control of the vehicle - off you go! The whole process takes no longer than 30 minutes maximum and in most cases you will be off in about 15 minutes.
Escorts available by appointment only.
Long Term loan available on manual wheelchairs only.
