Anyone in Plymouth willing to lend me a portable hoist?

I’m looking to borrow one for a week. I have cerebral palsy and can’t really afford to hire one as they’re really expensive.

Anyone able to help?

Thank you so much!

    Hi @JDhill1

    Have you been in touch with your local council about having a free home assessment to explore what aids and adaptations you are entitled to?  This is a government webpage that will take you through to your local authority's website to organise this.  While, this NHS webpage discusses other options such as getting a grant too.

    I'm also going to tag in @Richard_Scope our Cerebral palsy Information Specialist so he can respond when he's next working with any other suggestions he may have.

    Good luck and I hope you get a hoist sorted soon.
