    Hi @Marym,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's great to have you here.

    We have a dedicated page on our website about where you can find mobility scooters which may be of interest to you. I've also moved this to our disabled motoring category, where other members of our community may be able to offer further advice and support.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi,
    Try looking online at gumtree for your area or facebook selling groups. They very often have second hand mobility scooters on places like this. It really depends how much you want to pay but i'm sure if you look you'll find someone selling one fairly cheap.

    Hi!

    Its worth looking online. Gumtree might have some or you can approach the company directly to ask them. I’m confident that you’ll find someone willing to sell you one at a low price. Hopefully anyway. Start with a Google search. Also consider how much you are going to pay?

    You could try contacting local charities because some of them will help in paying for necessary items but they do tend to have limited funds.
