Anyone with a mobility problem can hire a wheelchair or mobility scooter for free, although donations are welcome.
All applicants must attend the Shopmobility Centre 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.
Shopmobility is located on the ground floor of the multi-storey car park on Fenton Street. 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).
