In recent months there has been some confusion amongst our customers within regard to a commerical retailer that opened in the area with a similar name. We are Scarborough Shopmobility, based at 5 Somerset Terrace in Scarborough. We are a registered charity (charity no: 1111575) and have been operating in Scarborough since 2004. Scarborough Mobility is a commercial retailer which opened a few years later, and despite the similarity in name, have no connection with us.
We are always looking for support and donations. Should you wish to make a donation, please use the button below.
