Services

Shopmobility Melton is situated in a mobile unit in St Mary’s Way Car Park. We are open Tuesdays 9.00am to 3.00pm, Friday and Saturday mornings 9.30am to 1.30pm. Disabled bays are available but any blue badge holder can park at his convenience in any marked bay if displaying the badge. There is time limit in St Mary's car park of up to a maximum of 3 hours. This applies to disabled parking bays and those displaying Blue Badges. Blue badge holders must also display a clock alongside their badge.

The Scheme aims to provide a welcoming, efficient and easy to use service for members and visitors. To join, new users need to complete a registration form and provide 2 forms of identification. A member of staff will then help choose the most suitable equipment and demonstrate how to use it safely.

A new member should have supervised practice to build up confidence before exploring Melton. Safety guidance sheets are issued to all new users detailing safe use of the equipment.

The whole registration process takes around 15 minutes.

Anyone with limited mobility is welcome to join the scheme. This includes elderly or disabled people right through to those with temporary mobility problems due to illness or accident. They do not need to be registered disabled, a regular equipment user or a blue badge holder.

The daily hire of equipment is most popular but we also offer long term loans for those needing to take the equipment away. This might be for a holiday or to aid recover when purchasing equipment would not be practical.
