Our tale begins on a cold, cold night
From humble beginnings in a portacabin in the St Giles car park in November 1995, with one scooter and a few borrowed manual chairs, Shopmobility Moray Ltd has offered shoppers who have mobility problems an easier method of visiting the city centre for the best part of a decade.  Since then we grew steadily and moved to our present premises in 2001 (located beside the Press and Journal).  We now have 14 scooters, 3 powered chairs and 20 manual chairs including one with a power pack and one child's chair.   Walking sticks, frames and walking trolleys are also available.  But that is not all!   We have sponsored walks and stalls at all major local events.

We are partly funded by the Moray Council.  This is a free service for those with limited mobility or sight or hearing impairments, run by a Management Committee of volunteers. The day to day running is by a full time coordinator and a team of volunteers. Escorts are available if required, to accompany, to push a wheelchair, or to lend an arm (you don't have to need a wheelchair).
