Emma Reynolds, Labour Member of Parliament for Wolverhampton North East, has praised the work of Shopmobility during a visit to their Wolverhampton City Centre premises. Shopmobility provides manual and powered wheelchairs alongside scooters for those with limited mobility so that they can use city centre facilities.

Emma said:

“I was delighted to visit the Shopmobility centre in Wolverhampton. Services like this provide a vital lifeline to elderly and disabled people, enabling them to enjoy one of life’s simple pleasures, a day out at the shops. I know that many of my constituents use the Shopmobility scheme, telling me what a crucial difference it makes to their lives. Denise Eccleston and her team are doing great work giving disabled people greater independence”

“Shopmobility also boosts spending on the high street by in excess of £15 million per year, and supports an addition 800,000 visits to our shopping centres nationwide. In Wolverhampton Shopmobility funding has been secured until 2017, and I would like to thank the council for its ongoing support of this important scheme.”
