Clyde Shop Mobility
Clyde Shopmobility, which is based in shop premises within Clyde Shopping Centre, is a charity which was set up to tackle loneliness and isolation for elderly people and people with disabilities. Our principles are built around the social model of disability and helping people to live independent lives. This includes providing mobility scooters, wheelchairs and sighted guides to allow people to go out into society. We have also set up various groups to allow people to come into our shop for socialisation. We are supported by our local authority and also access various grants to allow us to provide these services.
We were also successful in accessing monies from Scottish Government which is administered through Inspiring Scotland, for a separate project called SDS Ideas. This enables information to be given to residents throughout West Dunbartonshire Council Area regarding Self Directed Support. The project provides independent support to anyone going through the process of accessing social care.

They will report to the Clyde Shopmobility Board of Trustees and will be responsible for all aspects of the delivery of Clyde Shopmobility and SDS Ideas services, staff management, reporting and finance.
