The British Red Cross mobility aids service in Poundbury has recently reopened after over a year of closure. This service is committed to ensuring that everyone in need of a temporary wheelchair has adequate access to one. If you, or someone you care for is recovering from a short-term injury or ailment, a wheelchair can make a significant difference to their recovery, mental health and well-being. Whether you’re recovering from an operation, a sprained ankle, or have an ongoing condition that flares up, such as arthritis or fibromyalgia, hiring a wheelchair could help to ease the pressure, and improve independence at home.
Due to the previous closure of the service, they are now looking for customer service volunteers to help with the running of this service. If you have a few hours spare per week and would like to volunteer you can do so here.
