"The aim of Lowestoft Shopmobility is to improve the quality of life for mobility impaired people by giving them the freedom and independence to enjoy all the activities that able bodied people take for granted"
Who can use the service?
Anyone whose mobility is restricted by age, illness, disability or accident regardless of whether the restriction is of a permanent or of a temporary nature.
