Hackney Community Transport wins ScootAbility contract

Posted: 08 Apr 2016

ScootAbility is an award-winning scooter loan scheme that provides people with access to mobility scooters and powerchairs.  This equipment is brilliant at providing greater independence, but is expensive and often impractical to store at home.  ScootAbility lets people borrow scooters or powerchairs for free – and we deliver and collect the vehicles directly to and from service users’ homes.

From 2016, we will also be collecting and delivering manual wheelchairs, which is a new aspect of the service, following the closure of Shop Mobility in Camden. This enables us to reach even more individuals and help them to live fulfilling lives through the scheme.

We have been delivering ScootAbility in Camden since it first started in 2004, helping to design the service, so retaining it for a minimum of another year is great news.
