WE’RE OPEN MONDAY 9:30AM – 12:30PM & TUESDAY TO SATURDAY 9:30AM – 3:30PM

Since 1993, Bury Shopmobility has been dedicated to serving all those that require its services. We pride ourselves on provide a highly personalised service and serving the people of Bury.

Who are we?

Bury Shopmobility is a local charity dedicated to serving and assisting any persons who have problems with their mobility which inhibits them from carrying out their business in Bury town centre and the surrounding area. 

What we offer?

We strive to be able to serve all customers needs; to do this, we have an extensive fleet of manual and electric wheelchairs alongside a sizeable fleet of mobility scooters to serve all needs.

Where are we?

Bury Shopmobility is situated in an ideal location for all your shopping needs. We are located behind the Bhs/Millgate multi storey carpack with easy access to Bury Market and the Rock.

Want to Help Out?

Want to volunteer? That’s fantastic! Call in or contact us to have an informal chat with one of us about what we have available. We accept new volunteers only when there is a need for new team members as we do not want to disappoint or over-staff the charity.

As we receive no external funding, we run a series of events throughout the year to raise funds to cover the running costs of the charity and to make improvements to our service e.g. new scooters.

We often work in partnership with a local business; over the last two years we have worked with Bhs and we are currently working alongside ASDA.

If you would like to assist with providing fundraising opportunities or to help out at one of our events, please give us a call or a message on the Contact Us page and we will get back to you.

Do you have a product or service that would be beneficial to our services? ​If you feel you have something to offer that would be helpful to our charity, please contact us on 0161 764 9966 to discuss the potential options available.
