In this issue of Community Update, we are delighted to select Driffield Mobility for our Commitment to Excellence Award.

During the current cost-of-living crisis, many people feel that disability equipment is an unaffordable luxury. During the current cost-of-living crisis, many people feel that disability equipment is an unaffordable luxury. Driffield Mobility has therefore taken the step of offering quality preloved mobility equipment.

“For less than the price of a new Mobility Scooter we can also supply pre-loved mobility scooters and fit a preloved boot hoist so that you can take your independence with you on your travels. We believe maintaining independence is essential,” explained Rich Willis: Driffield Mobility’s Marketing Manager.

They have also recently introduced a service to source and supply preowned ready adapted Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles in response to the limited range of new vehicles available and the high cost. Driffield Mobility can further adapt these vehicles to meet individual/passenger requirements if needed.

In spite of having a lifelong disability, Rich is a five-times world powerlifting champion and as a user of the services that Driffield Mobility provides, is perfectly placed to understand the trials and tribulations of the disabled community,

“Our Services give our customers the independence and freedom to engage in all aspects of life. We are passionate about sharing information of what is available to both disabled and non-disabled communities. This information includes not just about what services we can provide but also what holistic help is available from other agencies, new innovations, changes in legislation etc.”

The family-based company prides itself on providing solutions to help customers with disabilities or mobility challenges maintain their independence. These solutions include bespoke adaptations to vehicles for both drivers and passengers, from hand controls, scooter/wheelchair and person hoists to fully Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs) with drive from wheelchair capability. The company also offers a wide range of mobility scooters, manual and electric wheelchairs as well as living aids to make everyday tasks easier.

Established in 1996 by founder Keith Cadwaller, Driffield Mobility is now run by son Kevin and daughter Lynn, following Keith’s well-deserved retirement in 2007. Based in the market town of Driffield- known as the beating heart of the Yorkshire Wolds, the team has seen the lifechanging results of its services for twenty-eight years.

“Our products and mobility solutions use cutting-edge technology. For example, the fly by wire Space Drive system is custom designed for the individual and allows clients that have severe limitations to limb movement to be able to drive from their wheelchair or to transfer to the driver’s seat. A vehicle can literally be driven by use of many inputs even a joystick!

We are delighted to receive this award and credit goes to our whole team, We all have genuine empathy, care and desire to help our clients, whom we treat as individuals with individual needs specific to them,” concluded Rich.
