ABOUT US

Old Staines Shopmobility Home
National Federation of Shopmobility

The need for a Shopmobility service in Staines was first identified in a study of accessible transport commissioned by Spelthorne Committee for Access Now (SCAN), a voluntary group that seeks to improve access and facilities for disabled people in Spelthorne. Staines Shopmobility opened as a Registered Charity in September 1998 and originally occupied premises where the Metro Bank now stands. The service then moved into a temporary home in Norris Road, which is now home to Limeyard. The latest relocation was in September 2014 to our purpose built unit opposite Vue cinema. The charity exists through a mix of service charges, fundraising and donations along with funding support from Spelthorne Borough Council, Two Rivers and the Elmsleigh Centre. The charity is a member of the National Federation of Shopmobility, which oversees Shopmobility schemes and governs best practice. The service also adheres to the British Healthcare Trades Association's code of practice.
