Social Enterprise Week - Shopmobility

18/11/2021 (Staff Post - Iain Cunningham )

Today's spotlight is Shopmobility Paisley District who have long gone above and beyond their core service to ensure those using the social enterprise feel supported.

Shop-mobility Paisley & District has been in existence for over 25 years and is a membership organisation. 

Based in Paisley, we aim to tackle the problem of social isolation for those who have either permanent or temporary mobility problems by providing a free scooter and wheelchair service for people in Renfrewshire and beyond, but we do more than this. 

Hiring equipment is free for the day and a nominal cost if people wish to hire overnight.

In the last few years, we decided to concentrate on developing our social enterprise as a way of being less dependent on grant funding. We had surveyed our members, customers and partners to ask them for their views on what service they wished us to provide. Their feedback, as well as our staff and volunteer expertise, resulted in a shift change from just hiring equipment but developing opportunities to generate income. For example, long term scooter hires, scooter repairs, deliveries, ordering equipment and generally offering an all-round good experience to anyone who requires our service.
