Shopmobility wheelchairs and scooters
Horsham Shopmobility provides manual and powered wheelchairs and motorised scooters to anyone, young or old, who has problems walking around Horsham Town Centre. It gives people greater independence and access to the shopping areas and leisure facilities. Users do not have to be registered disabled to use the service.
Is Shopmobility free?
Yes, the service is free of charge (although standard charges apply to the adjacent parking). If you wish you may make a donation towards the service in the box provided on site, which would help to cover administration and insurance costs.
