Thanks to a wonderful Grant from the Talbot Village Trust and ACT Foundation we have been able to purchase more mobility scooters for our Out n' About service. These scooters will carry a larger weight than the majority of our other units and will increase the capacity of our service.
Volunteers are desperately needed - if you can help us please phone us on 01202 661770.
Out n' About bookings will be open from April 4th 2017. We are pleased to announce a new event for this service - The Clasic and Supercars Show being held at Sherborne Castle.
SafeWise Bournemouth is working in partnership with the Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group to deliver a safety awareness course for mobility scooter users or those thinking of purchasing a mobility scooter in Dorset.
During the combined theory and practical session you will find out about:
· The law and mobility scooters
