Mobility scooters and motorised wheelchairs

Mobility scooters and motorised wheelchairs are a necessary part of life for many people. If you have a scooter – or need to get one – here is what you need to do.

Mobility scooters can make a huge difference to people’s independence and life. But they come with some safety issues and can be a fire risk. As you landlord we need to work with you and to keep you, your home and your neighbours safe.

Before you get a mobility scooter you must request permission to store, charge and use it in your home or scheme.
