Independent Living

We understand that mobility is crucial to maintaining independent living, from completing day to day tasks to working or keeping active or creative. Mobility difficulties can make everyday tasks hard too, often resulting in us not taking part in things that enrich our lives.

Keeping Active Mind and Body

Our Mobility support services provide you with the information and advice you need to make your daily tasks easier, and to give you access to services that put enjoyment into living.

Outdoors and Indoors

Our award winning Countryside Mobility and Heritage Ability schemes have partnered with some of the most interesting visitor attractions and beauty spots across the south west. Giving you access with the help of all terrain mobility scooters and accessible information, such as large print guides and BSL tours.
