We recently went along to visit the Shopmobilty team from Local Solutions based in Liverpool city centre to have a look at a service they are providing to help people who have mobility issues enjoy a day out in a stress free way.
The Shopmobilty team can help you find a solution that will make your day out much more enjoyable whether it be shopping or sightseeing they can provide manual wheelchairs, electric wheelchairs and electric scooters to hire for a small daily fee (longer hires are also available) and the service is located in two key areas within the city centre: at Liverpool One and within St Johns Market. The service is open to anyone who has difficulty getting around and is not restricted to people who are registered disabled.
Our lovely service user Laura was given a very warm welcome from Cheryl Bell and her team at the Liverpool One shop, where she tried out one of their electric scooters (available to hire at £10 a day) to see how it all worked. We were very impressed by the friendly and professional service that the team provided and Laura felt very safe and assured that they would supply the right equipment for her needs and she very much enjoyed her trial ride around the car park!
