Welcome to Clyde Shopmobility.


In West Dunbartonshire we take pride in our efforts to involve all sections of our community.


Clyde Shopmobility is here to help you get around town by providing mobility equipment, such as motorised scooters and wheelchairs.


It is available to anyone, who because of illness, accident, injuries or disability, has difficulty getting around.  We also provide ‘sighted guides’ for those with visual impairment. Shopmobility is now available in Clydebank Shopping Centre, and in Alexandria.

Scooters




We now have a range of mobility scooters available for your use.


You will be trained on how to safely use the equipment, you can then have use of the scooter to go shopping within all areas of the Clydebank Shopping Centre, or in Alexandria.


Other Services




Sighted Guide Service


Sighted guide technique enables a person who is blind or visually impaired to use a person with sight as a guide.












We provide this service to all members who are visually impaired.  Call for more information.

Wheelchairs




If you need a wheelchair to get around we can supply that too.  We have both self propelled wheelchairs and a powered wheelchair.











Accessing shops, amenities and services is a fundamental right of all individuals living in our local community.  


Our charity is supported by West Dunbartonshire Council, The West Dunbartonshire Change Fund, The Voluntary Action Fund, The Lottery, Comic Relief, and Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.


Clyde Shopmobility aims to ensure all of our community can fully access shops, facilities and amenities.  Give us a call or just drop into the project and have a chat with our friendly staff and volunteers.
