AFFORDABLE SCOOTER AND WHEELCHAIR HIRE*


SERVICE FOR THE DISABLED

Our Mission

We aim to provide affordable hire of mobility scooters and wheelchairs on a hire* basis to disabled people in immediate need.

About us

We are a registered charity run by a small group of volunteers, whose role is to support the disabled community by means of helping them to overcome mobility problems.

Experience has shown that the use of mobility scooters can give a disabled person a sense of independence and help them integrate into the local community.

We make an operational and safety assessment for each hiring to help ensure the health and safety of the client, who signs a legally binding loan document.

DAG took delivery of two new 8mph scooters purchased with a grant from Tesco, whose customers at their Stour Park store placed us top of the list in their Bags of Help in-store voting. We’re very grateful to them and to Groundwork, who manage the scheme, for helping us to replace some of our worn-out scooters with new ones.


We are taking part in the scheme again in March and April so please support us.
















We lost one of our colleagues last year who was very dear to us.

She had started to arrange the event ‘Tea on the Lawn’ as a fund raiser. We are going to continue with this in her memory and hold it in the Woodhouse Gardens on Sunday 21st July. This is the anniversary of her passing.

Tickets and posters will soon be available. Tickets at £3.00 will include a cream tea. Also, we will have music, face painting for the kids, and a tombola. We would like other stands so please contact us to find out more.
