Cornwall mobility got in touch a little while back to share some news with us, that we felt may just be of interest to you our website users! They have an agreement with Cornwall Council to work in partnership with Disability Cornwall & Isles of Scilly to operate and support the fleet of beach wheelchairs at major beaches in Cornwall.

Full Story

Beach wheelchairs have been designed for outdoor use and have large inflatable wheels which allow them to roll over sand and pebbles with remarkable ease giving a comfortable and safe ride. This has allowed people with mobility challenges the pleasure and freedom to access and enjoy Cornwall’s beaches where they may have found it more difficult in the past.

The photo here shows a beach wheelchair in action taking our Chairman Frank along Perranporth Beach.

Cornwall Mobility have designed a map so that you can easily see which beaches have wheelchairs available to hire. There is a small image of the map here but if you follow the link below to Cornwall Mobility’s own website you can download your own copy.
