The Health and Wellness Hub’s Shop Mobility service in North Lanarkshire is aimed at people with mobility issues (long or short term). They help them get out and about, and gain their independence back, with a range of easy to use portable scooters, wheelchairs and power chairs. This allows service users to access town centre shopping, meet friends and enjoy leisure activities.
The service is open to anyone living in North Lanarkshire and you do not have to be registered disabled to use it. For a very small annual membership fee, you will have access to the equipment, Monday to Saturday 9:30am-4pm.
They also provide a hire service on a selection of wheelchairs and portable scooters that are easily dismantled and will fit most cars. Please contact them for further details on this service, or for any further information:

North Lanarkshire Council has an award-winning control room providing one of the most advanced control systems in Scotland. Working with Police Scotland, with officers routinely working within our control room, we already monitor more than 1000 cameras.
This reassuring presence curbs crime and antisocial behaviour, playing a key role in making communities safer and more pleasant places to be.
Gain extra protection for your staff, stock and customers through our Shopwatch service. Our easy-to-use, secure radio link gives you peace of mind through instant contact to all other users and the police. The existence of a Shopwatch scheme in your area is in itself a deterrent to potential criminals. And if there are criminals in your area you can receive instant advance warnings so they can be identified, tracked and apprehended.
We offer a fast response to threats such as shoplifting and aggressive customers – plus a range of other incidents such as lost children – and we coordinate communications with the relevant emergency services. Our CCTV cameras can also track any offenders and provide video evidence if required.
