Welcome To Bracknell Shopmobility
We re-opened for hires, sales and receipt of donated goods on Tuesday 13 April.
The kitchen remains closed until further notice and all social and fundraising events are suspended. Once the Government allows, these activities will be resuming.
COVID-19 safety measures are in place and we strongly request that you abide by these as indicated and as instructed by our staff.
As entry to the shop will be limited to two customers for hires and four for goods purchasing per time, in order to avoid time queuing, we request that you use our contact details to book a hire slot and if needed, our “Meet and Greet” service. This service will operate only from No 4 High Street Car Park and the bus station. See our Contact Us page for maps.
How we are funded.
Bracknell Shopmobility is a Charity based in Bracknell Town Centre. Our aim is to assist people with mobility impairments, temporary or permanent, to get around the locality. We are a “not for profit” organisation and all our money goes towards providing services for our users. There is an annual membership fee of £30.00 and hire charges for non members. Please see our Equipment page for full details of our hire scheme.
If you feel able, please help us by making a donation. We usually raise about £2500 per month and have sorely miss this income over the months of shutdown when we could not sell goods. Also, if you wish to volunteer, please contact Becky or Sue at the shop.
The annual grant, received from Bracknell Forest Council, has been greatly reduced since 2017 and discontinued on 5th April 2021. Bracknell Regeneration provides us with our Princess Square premises. Fund raising is therefore a priority, as our running costs are in excess of £50,000 per annum. You can help us to cover our outgoings in many ways. Please go to our Fund Raising page to see how.
We are always after unwanted, books, DVD’s, CD’s, Bric-a-brac etc which we can sell to help raise funds. Please note we can not accept second hand clothing or electrical goods.
How to hire
Please allow 15 minutes to complete the registration form and to receive instruction. Please bring with you proof of identity confirming your name and address e.g. a recent Utility bill, driving license, bank card. We will issue you with a membership card and on your next visit you can simply show your card.
Our friendly and helpful team of staff and volunteers will help you choose the right equipment to suit your needs and provide you with tuition on using it safely and confidently.
See our Equipment page for our full range of scooters and wheel chairs.
We look forward to welcoming you at our shop.
