Occupational Therapists, Doctors, Health Visitors and Social Workers can request small equipment aids on behalf of their client.  These professionals normally carry out an assessment and we rely on their expertise when we supply items. Each request is based on the individuals needs.  And in most cases, once we receive a completed referral form, we will supply requested items on the same day.  A designated professional, relative, carer or friend can sign for collection and it is at this point our role in this service is completed.

We are only able to provide items, which are withinstocking sock aid our budget and can be obtained from our supplier. Types of small equipment aids we supply include small household and personal aids.

We are pleased to offer the use of a wheelchair at no charge. The length of loan will be agreed dependant on the need. Donations are gratefully accepted for this service.

We also have a small number of Walking Trolleys and Perching Stools for short time loan or sale.
