Shopmobility is a service that helps all people who consider themselves to have mobility problems (whether through disability, illness or injury) to continue to get around city and town centres independently, with freedom, confidence and dignity.
Who can use it?
Shopmobility is open to anyone who feels that getting around the shopping area is difficult and you DO NOT have to be registered as having a disability to use the service.
How much does it cost?
Shopmobility facilities are available absolutely FREE but a donation box will be on hand if you would like to help with the running costs (charges apply to overnight and short-term loan).
Where is it based?
There are two Shopmobility schemes within Perth & Kinross, one based Perth at the Canal Street car park and one based in Pitlochry at the Leisure Centre.
