Shop Mobility
The National Federation of Shopmobility has launched a New website.

 Shop Mobility

The National Mobility Registration Scheme has grown out of the need for consumers and the Police to be able to reunite stolen or abandoned mobility vehicles with their owners. Originally piloted by Littlehampton Shopmobility scheme working closely with Sussex Police, it soon became clear that a National Scheme was needed.

The National Federation of Shopmobility has been working on the website and scheme for the last two years and launched the new registration website on March 28th at Naidex.
Steve Perry (Marketing and Communications Manager) said; “We were amazed by the police statistics for 2015, that out of 517 mobility scooters stolen (with an estimated value of £615,000) only 22% were ever recovered. We understand the devastation the theft of a mobility vehicle can have on its owner with the loss of independence. We saw the scheme as way of helping to increase the numbers of vehicles returned to their owners working closely with the police nationally”

The cost of registration is £12.00 per annum, which is not a large price to pay to help track your stolen vehicle. Proceeds from the registration will be donated to National Federation of Shopmobility members nationwide. Shopmobility aids those with mobility impairments either permeant or temporary by hiring scooters and wheelchairs to them.

The National Federation of Shopmobility is located in Wellingborough and we have members across the UK, Ireland and the Channel Isles.

Who Am I?

Hi, my name is Janice and I am the founder of stands for Optimistic and ProActive Seniors Chat. OAPSchat was born in April 2013 as a Facebook page. To date there are over 1460 FB likes. It was in November 2013 that I decided I had enough material and confidence to launch the website.

Since that day, I have been writing articles on all kinds of topics. ranging from hobbies, holidays, food and drink, memories, families, finance and much much more. I now have over one hundred and thirty seven wonderful contributors to date and articles on all different subjects are posted on a daily basis. Over 1400 articles can be read now! Members can comment via disqus, FB and Twitter.

Raffles are held monthly, sometimes more often. A newsletter goes out once a month with my plans for the coming weeks. I am an Independent Happy List Winner 2014 for founding the website.

Loneliness is a big scourge on our society worldwide and the website helps combat this awful isolation by coming together and sharing our thoughts and ideas. OAPSchat is well and truly born now and I hope it will continue to thrive. With your support, I'm confident it will!
