Similarly our trained Dementia Assessors can assess your home to help make your environment more dementia-friendly.

Equipment for Hire

We provide a wheelchair hire service, which will enable you to move around freely. It is aimed at people of all ages who are dealing with a mobility issue. Our wheelchairs can be hired from:

  • The Bradbury Independent Living Centre
  • Old Customs House, Whitehaven
  • De Lucy Centre, Egremont
  • Bradbury Centre, Millom

The wheelchairs are hired on a short term basis of a maximum of 6 weeks and can be used throughout the UK.

We are also able to provide access to a child's wheelchair.

Wheelchair hire charges:

  • £5 per day
  • £15 per weekend
  • £25 per week

NB. There is a £25 refundable deposit, which will be reimbursed upon return. Due to the limited number of wheelchairs and popularity of this service a daily charge will be incurred on overdue wheelchairs.

We can also link you to the British Red Cross equipment loan service to assist with mobility and personal care.

A free emergency loan service is available for the following equipment:
