Shopmobility Moray providing a service to people with long or short term mobility problems.

ABOUT US

Our tale begins on a cold, cold night......

From humble beginnings in a portacabin in the St Giles car park in November 1995, with only one scooter and a few borrowed manual chairs, Shopmobility Moray was created. Elgin could now offer shoppers with mobility problems an easier method of visiting the city centre. During the last decade, Shopmobility has grown from strength to strength.  Since then we have moved to our present premises in 2001.  We now have an extensive selection of scooters, powered chairs and manual chairs, including one with a power pack and one child's chair.   Walking sticks, frames and walking trolleys are also available.

We are partly funded by the Moray Council.  This is a service for those with limited mobility, sight or hearing impairments and is run by a Management Committee of volunteers. The day to day running is managed by a full time coordinator and team of volunteers. Escorts are available if required, to accompany, push a wheelchair, or to lend an arm (you don't have to need a wheelchair). But that is not all!   

As we conitnue to grow we are always looking to raise funds to ensure this invaluable service remains available. We have sponsored walks and stalls at all major local events, allowing the community to contribute to this service, whether it's with a well received donation or an offer to volunteer.
