Shopmobility has joined a local scheme to provide a safe haven for vulnerable people in need of a safe space while they are in town. (more…)
The National Federation of Shopmobility has an annual award for helpful and effective Shopmobility schemes. Last year High Wycombe Shopmobility was really pleased to be shortlisted for the award and this year we are really proud that we have been recognised and “highly commended” for our friendly and helpful service.
A new directory of all the shopmobility schemes around the UK has been published and is available from our office for £3 to buy or an office copy is available to browse.
Amongst useful information about the different schemes around the country, it contains details of a new registration scheme for mobility scooters and a lovely write up about High Wycombe Shopmobility as we were nominated for the 2016 Tom Hillier Award.
We have a dedicated team of volunteers at Shopmobility who give some of their time to help us help more people and help us extend what we can do such as enabling us to meet people from their bus, taxi or their car with a scooter or wheelchair.
Current volunteer opportunities
We are looking for somebody who would like to volunteer with us for the following:
Customer Service Volunteers
Tuesdays/ Wednesdays, mornings or afternoons.
It would ideally suit someone who would like to gain some experience in a customer service or caring environment to enhance their skills or who would like to do something to help in our community.
The role is varied and involves assisting our customers with mobility scooters and wheelchairs, taking bookings, helping to update and maintain our booking processes and helping look after our vehicle fleet.
Leaflet delivery Volunteers
We are looking for people who can help us find homes for our leaflets to help more people find out about our service and who can help replenish them every so often.
We would love to hear from you if you have got a few hours to spare and have got ideas about where we could display our leaflets
