HOW TO JOIN
To register as a member, it is advisable to make an appointment as registration can take at least 30 minutes. This includes training and assessment in the use of our equipment.
We need two proofs of your ID with your name and address – e.g. recent (no more than 3 months) utility bill or bank statement. Or one with your name and address and one photo ID (passport, driving licence or Blue Badge). You do not need to be registered disabled.
If you wish to use a scooter or power chair and you have one of the following conditions we will need a letter from your doctor to say that you are fit to use powered equipment:
- DIABETES – controlled by insulin*
- FITS OR BLACKOUTS
- SLEEP DISORDERS
- MENTAL IMPAIRMENT (e.g. Alzheimer’s)
- POOR CONCENTRATION
- SEVERE WEAKNESS OR TIREDNESS IN THE UPPER LIMBS
- LEARNING DISABILITIES
However if your doctor is likely to charge for this, we suggest you try out one of our vehicles first to see if they are right for you.
Monday to Saturday, 9am to 5pm, except on Bank Holidays.
* Sight of current driving licence will be accepted.
