Shopmobility

We run Shopmobility schemes in Ashby and Scunthorpe. Anyone with a mobility problem can hire a wheelchair or mobility scooter for free, although donations are welcome.

Register for Shopmobility

All applicants must attend the Shopmobility Centre in Scunthorpe for an assessment before they are allowed to use the equipment.

Assessments are carried out by appointment between Monday and Thursday. No one is allowed out for the first time on a Friday or Saturday (Scunthorpe Market days) as the town centre is usually busy.

The Scunthorpe Shopmobility Centre is located on the ground floor of the Parishes multi-storey car park on Fenton Street, Scunthorpe. Two hours free parking is available and parking is free after 2pm. Blue badge holders park free at all times.

There is a maximum weight limit on the scooters. One has a maximum weight limit of 18 stone (115kg) and all others have a limit of 22 stone (139kg). 

To use the scooters in Ashby you must first be assessed at the Scunthorpe centre.

The Ashby shop mobility scheme is located at the Ashby Local Link office on Ashby Turn. Free parking is also available for users of the scheme.
