We provide powered scooters to help people with walking difficulties to shop.

The scooters are available to hire from within the Howard Centre in Welwyn Garden City (Unit 53).

To hire a scooter you need to become a member of the Shopmobility scheme. Membership will allow you to use the scheme as often as you wish, free of charge. 

On your first visit you will need to provide two forms of identification, proving your name and address.

If you have severe mobility difficulties, by prior arrangement, we will meet you at your car with a scooter or wheelchair.

Volunteer helpers with any time to spare are always needed to assist with the running of the Shopmobility service.

Opening times

  • Monday - Saturday: 10.30am - 4.30pm
  • Sunday: Closed
