Telephone line issues

Sorry, we are experiencing technical difficulties with our phone lines and are working to fix the problem. You can access many of our services online or by searching our website.


Leicester Shopmobility offers the free loan of a scooter, powerchair, power-assisted wheelchair or manual wheelchair to anyone with mobility problems when visiting the city centre.

All new customers are given detailed instructions on how to safely operate the equipment. Staff will test you to ensure you are competent and in full control of the equipment.

Pre-booking is advised to avoid disappointment. Equipment will not be available for loan after 2.30pm to enable us to sanitise the scooters and recharge them.
