Wheelchair hire

We can help when you have a temporary need for a wheelchair.

Maybe you have broken your leg, perhaps an elderly relative is coming to stay, or you could be waiting for a wheelchair to be provided by the NHS.

The Disability Resource Centre hires out manual wheelchairs and other equipment like ramps, rollators, crutches and walking frames to help you with your mobility.

Wheelchairs for children, for hire for £10 per week

Wheelchairs for children

Please read our terms and conditions for equipment hire.

If we are unable to supply a wheelchair for you, we can provide you with details of other organisations that may be able to help.

We have both self-propelling chairs (with large rear wheels) and attendant-controlled chairs (four small wheels, helper to push). We also have child-sized wheelchairs and a bariatric wheelchair for people weighing over 18 stones.

We have sets of leg extensions if required, subject to availability.

We charge (from July 2nd 2018) £15 per week or £18 per week if you pay VAT.

We usually supply wheelchairs for up to 4 weeks, but this can be extended if necessary up to 12 weeks (terms and conditions do apply).

Please note that we ask for a deposit of £50 which is returned to you when the chair is returned to us.

Types of wheelchair that we can supply for hire include:

  • A manual wheelchair with rims for self-propelling
  • A self-propelled wheelchair
  • A wheelchair suitable for children up to 12 years old.

If you require a wheelchair for a long-term need, you may be eligible for provision from the NHS.

Improve your confidence. Reduce stress.

New course starts in February. We have just started the first group on this course and we’re now looking for more Luton residents to join the next course that starts in February.

We know and understand how difficult it can be to find work if you are a carer. You may struggle to find paid employment that fits around your caring commitments. 

If you wish to return to work in some way, but are unsure how to start, then we can help with 1-2-1 support with our employment advisors.

For 2020 if you would like to make a difference to your family’s life just make contact to see how our Support Into Employment programme may be able to help you.

Learn all about becoming a volunteer for our charity at our special new volunteer event on Wednesday 5th February 2020. Read more about volunteering at The Disability Resource Centre.
