As part of its 40 year anniversary, Shopmobility will be appearing at the Naidex show in the NEC next month where it will look to increase awareness among end-users of the equipment hire service.
The National Federation of Shopmobility will also be celebrating three decades of operating and the organisation will have a stand at the disability show in Birmingham where it will seek to engage with consumers and professionals.
Taking place on 26 and 27 March, Naidex gathers innovation, information, suppliers, and speakers from around the world to one venue.
NFSUK Shopmobility services are dotted right across the country and help over 200,000 people every year make over on average two trips a week.
They hire mobility equipment – sometimes for a one-off fee or for an annual membership fee – to immobile people to help them make trips.
These trips vary from eye appointments, to lunch with friends, doing the weekly shop or being able to spend time out and about with family while on holiday.
Shopmobility is a lifeline to many elderly and disabled people but it is also there for people whose mobility impairment is temporary, due to broken bones, medical conditions, or recovery from an operation.
