    You can try your local Authority who may have some extra funding for the household support fund but whether they would fund this is a different matter.

    My only other suggestion would be a ramp which can be covered through a needs assessment. You can refer yourself for this by starting here. https://www.gov.uk/apply-needs-assessment-social-services

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hello @nixhug and a warm welcome, how are you today? Good, I hope.

    It's great that your mum gave you her old mobility scooter, but it sounds like storage is a quandary. I wonder if there are any local community groups on your social media, or organisations such as Freecycle etc. that you could add a 'wanted' advert to. Of course, you'd have to keep safe with any meet ups but it's another option to consider  :)

    Just to let you know, I've amended the title of your thread to help others spot it and offer wisdom, plus moved it to our Aids, adaptations and equipment category

    Good luck and please let us know how you get on.
