Connect FM Radio announced two mobility scooter thefts in the last 7 days. One scooter was stolen in Wellingborough and the other from Rothwell. We urge all mobility scooter owners to register their vehicle with us at the NMR so that we can help prevent the thefts and increase the chances of recovery should a theft occur.

For just £1 a month you can register your Mobility Scooter or Power Chair. This is a small price to pay for extra protection of your independence. Those who own mobility scooters no how vital they are to their everyday lives. It is the difference between getting out into the world or feeling trapped in your own home. It’s the difference between getting your own shopping or feeling like you are inconveniencing family or friends to shop for you. It’s the difference between getting your self to an appointment or having to try and get a ring and ride service to take you. It’s relying on yourself instead of relying on everyone else and that quite simply is freedom.

If you know someone with a scooter who hasn’t registered with us please let them know about us and what we do.

We are Open

On the 28th of March 2017, the NMR launched at Naidex at the NEC Birmingham. Chairman of the NFSUK Ray Hodgkinson was on hand to cut the ribbon at the British Healthcare Trades Association stand. We spent the three days chatting to trade and consumers explaining the National Mobility register and how it all started. Steve Perry of the BHTA had a speaker slot at the event and discussed the NMR and shopmobility with his audience showing the website and the shopmobility directory.
