Mobility aids in Wales

A client using a self propelled wheelchair© InfoOur volunteer-led mobility aids service helps tens of thousands of people every year. We provide wheelchair hire and short-term loans of equipment in almost 1,000 outlets in the UK.

Since 2010, the mobility aids service in Wales has been part-funded by the Big Lottery Fund, who donated £242,000.

The medical equipment service helps people return to their own homes after illness or surgery, enables them to go on holiday with friends or family, and promotes independence. These are the main types of equipment provided:

  • wheelchairs
  • backrests
  • bath seats
  • walking sticks and frames
  • commodes, bedpans and urinals.
