Funding of Shopmobility schemes under Transport Programme for People with Disabilities (TPPD) fund - Screening form

Date published: 22 May 2023

Shopmobility schemes aim to provide support to anyone who needs help with personal mobility, whether as a result of a short-term change in circumstances (e.g. recovery from surgery) or as a result of longer-term mobility difficulty (e.g. chronic medical conditions or disability). Schemes provide equipment including manual and electric wheelchairs, electric scooters, rollators, and walking sticks for short and sometimes long-term hire.

This form considers the equality impacts of a potential scenario where funding for Shopmobility schemes ceases at the end of July 2023.

This screening should be read in conjunction with the DfI Resource Budget 2023-24 Equality Impact Assessment Consultation
