Wheelchair Loan Charity – Colchester

The Short-Term Wheelchair Loan Charity has been set up to help local people in Colchester who need to hire or loan a wheelchair on a temporary basis.

Manual wheelchairs can be borrowed for up to three months. They can also be borrowed if you are waiting to be assessed by the NHS Wheelchair Service but haven’t yet been given a chair.

There are wheelchairs suitable for young children and most adults.
