Access Barnsley is our wheelchair and scooter hire service.

What is Access Barnsley?

Access Barnsley provides scooter and wheelchair hire to enable people aged 18+ who are restricted by temporary or permanent disablility to be able to access the shops and facilities of Barnsley Town Centre.

Along with scooter hire we have volunteers who can assit those who require help while shopping in the town centre. This could be escorting clients around town or helping them get to town on transport or collecting them from home and driving them into town (please note clients must meet a criteria for this service, staff will be happy to discuss).

We also have a small range of items that promote independent mobility which are available to purchase including RADAR Keys.

Where are we based?
