We’re going mobile

Mobility scooters can offer a great deal of independence when we need that extra boost to get out and about.

There are many different types available. Prices can range from under £400 to over £5,000, depending on the size and quality of the scooter.

Because there’s so much variety, it’s important to think about what will suit you before you buy. A useful guide is available from Rica (formerly Ricability), the trading name of the national research charity Research Institute for Consumer Affairs. (Photo: Rica)
