West Bridgford Shopmobility

Mobility When You Need It!

Thanks for visiting!


Autumn is definitely upon us, but there are still some lovely sunny days. So if you feel like a drive round the park or shopping on the Avenue, remember, as a member, you can use a scooter locally for a few hours free of charge. Our annual membership fee is now £20.

Also, if you are planning a trip away this autumn, you can hire a collapsible scooter or a wheelchair from us to pop in your boot for your holiday. Call in to the office behind the Library or give us a ring on 0115 9815451 to make your booking. We ask for a returnable deposit of £50 for a scooter and then the hire charge is £30 per week; for a wheelchair the deposit is £30 and £20 hire charge per week.


West Bridgford Shopmobility is a charity that provides mobility devices (manual and powered wheelchairs, walkers and scooters) for anybody who has a mobility problem, enabling them to visit shops and places of interest in central West Bridgford.

The immobility may be permanent or temporary, and caused by disability, age, illness or accident; it’s not necessary to be registered as disabled to take advantage of our service.

We also operate a short-term hire scheme (payable weekly) with scooters and wheelchairs which can be dismantled to go in your car, enabling you, for example, to:

  • Take it away on your holiday in the UK
  • support a visitor with mobility problems
  • help you after illness, or discharge from hospital

Here’s how Shopmobility can make life easier for you! 

  1. You can take your UK holiday without worrying about getting around easily when you’re there!
  2. If you’re visited by someone who has mobility problems, don’t keep a scooter or a wheelchair in the house ‘Just In Case’ – we can provide you with one when you need it!
  3. If you’ve been ill, or are recuperating after a hospital stay, we can help you to get around again!

Visit us - we're in the West Bridgford Library complex - you can call us on 0115 981 5451 or email us at [email protected]
