Countryside Mobility Hire Scheme cover
Mission To provide disabled people with a real outdoor experience, and enable them to access new areas of the countryside with independence, whether alone or with family.
Description

Countryside Mobility South West is a not for profit mobility equipment hire scheme working to improve access to the countryside for people with limited mobility living in and visiting the South West region.

The scheme was established in 2010 and is operated by the charity Living Options Devon, a user-led organisation working to ensure that people with disabilities and Deaf people are empowered to lead the lives they choose. For more information visit www.livingoptions.org.

We work with a variety of partners who hire out our 'Tramper' mobility scooters and wheelchair accessible 'Wheelyboats' at their visitor attractions across the south west, to enable people with limited mobility to enjoy and access to the countryside.

We undertake safety assessments and Disability Access Audits at each site, aided by two access auditors who have first hand experience of living with a physical disability
