The Appliance Loan Scheme.

The ALS is a short term scheme whereby we loan out various mobility aids for two months.

The reason for this is that we have limited stock and therefore scheme is designed to help people that have a sudden need and need time to find a permanent solution.

It may be that they only need the items for two months anyway.

Just a few samples of the equipment we hold.

We have both small and large wheelchairs. Also rollators.


There is no charge but we welcome donations if possible.

The major items for loan are;

  1. Wheelchairs, standard size, large adult or childrens
  2. Commodes, you will have to buy the bucket as we cannot clean or reuse them, the charge is £9 per bucket.
  3. Rollalongs or strollers, both 3 and 4 wheel types.
  4. Swedish trollies, two tier, for use in the home.

Plus toilet surround frames, toilet seat raisers, shower stools, bathboards, crutches.

Also other sundry  items.

NB. Loans are for a limited period of two months, this is to allow you to either source one yourself or, by recovery from an injury, cease the need for the items borrowed.

The store is not staffed but make an appointment by ringing our mobile number, 07761 602678, and a member of club will meet you at the store on a mutually agreed date and time.

The store is sited at the rear of the Saffron Walden Community Hospital, Radwinter Road, Saffron Walden, Essex, CB11 3HY.


However, we would ask that visitors to the store wear a mask.

Also we would appreciate it that if returning items can they please be wiped down with anti bacterial wipes.
