Newcastle Shopmobility provides mobility equipment for use within Newcastle City Centre. The service is based at Eldon Garden Shopping Centre and has full access to Eldon Square Shopping Centre and beyond. You do not have to be registered disabled to use the equipment as it is available to all who would benefit from mobility assistance.

The scheme offers powered scooters wheelchairs and other mobility aids for hire and is a great way to facilitate independent mobility throughout the city centre. Whether shopping or sightseeing or going for a drink and something to eat with friends, the service provides for all your mobility needs.
