Rochdale Borough Shopmobility

Shopmobility provides manual powered wheelchairs and powered scooters to help people who have limited mobility shop with ease and enjoyment in Rochdale's Town Centre.

It is for anyone, regardless of age, whether their disability is temporary or permanent.  Contact us or visit our website for details on memberships.

What we do

When you arrive at the unit for the first time you will be asked to complete a short registration form. Please bring some form of identification showing your name and address. A member of our friendly staff will show you how to use the wheelchair or scooter.
