Ribble Valley Shopmobility is a charity funded organisation which provides mobility scooters, manual and powered wheelchairs and power packs to enable people with limited mobility to shop independently and use the town centre facilities. The scheme may be used by the young or old regardless of whether their disability is temporary or permanent. First time users will need to register (free of charge) and training in the use of the vehicle will be provided. A small charge is made for the hire of the equipment to ensure the future running of the scheme. Any additional donations are also welcome. Due to recent funding the scheme has acquired a small fleet of off-road mobility scooters which are available (see the 'Tramper Programme' section).
The scheme is located on Railway View Avenue close to Clitheroe town centre. It is open from 10am-4pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays which are the towns market days.
There are double yellow lines outside where disabled badge holders may park for 3 hours when displaying their badge. Parking is also available within the town centre and the surrounding side streets. The nearest pay and display car park is approximately 100 metres away and parking is free for disabled badge holders parked within the designated bays. Currently awaiting access ramp installation for the front of the shop. In the meantime Ramped access is available at the rear of the shop in Brennand Street
Ribble Valley Shopmobility is grateful of any donated equipment. Without the generosity of the public the scheme would not be able to provide such a large number of mobility equipment. As a result of the new recycling scheme there are other items of equipment for hire such as toilet seat raisers, perching stools and walking frames. These are ideal for those visiting the area or those awaiting mobility equipment from the occupational therapist.
In addition to hiring out mobility equipment the office also has a small display of visually impaired items for sale. These can be purchased and taken immediately and other items from the catalogues will be delivered to the shop within 3/4 working days. Also available for purchase are small mobility items such as grabbers, radar keys, disabled badge holders and new clocks for the blue badges. Any questions do not hesitate to contact us. I can add info to the page inline.
