Help with purchase of powered wheelchairs and scooters

In the search for a powered wheelchair that he couldn’t afford to buy himself, a 43-year-old man with ME and his social worker turned to The Mobility Trust, a national charity providing powered wheelchairs and scooters for severely disabled chldren and adults who cannot obtain them any other way.

The social worker let us know today that The Mobility Trust came up with the goods – delivering exactly what they said they would do on the tin!

"The powered wheelchair for my client has arrived and is about to be delivered.  Mobility Trust delivered everything they said they would and were easy to work with although they did require quite a lot of information in the initial stages to help them reach a decision about accepting my In the client, but nothing too onerous," she wrote

"The only thing we have negotiated on is that my team will be responsible for the annual service as this is something we normally take on when we raise charity funds for powered wheelchairs  and Mobility Trust are paying for three years insurance.

"When I first agreed to support my client to try and raise funds for a powered chair, I did wonder how charities would view his ‘disability’ as often it is not taken seriously by society generally – so was really pleased that the Mobility Trust offered their support." 

The Mobility Trust explains how to apply for their help in short, simple English at their website.
