How do I borrow a wheelchair or other mobility aids?
You need to contact your local Red Cross office to find equipment near you. To see your office's contact details, simply type your postcode into our easy search tool.
Book equipment early to make sure you can get what you need over the Christmas and New Year period.
Equipment is usually available within 24 hours in an emergency.
This service is run by volunteers, so we do request donations to help us continue providing this valuable service. A refundable deposit may also be required.
