Description

The Community Equipment and Wheelchair Service provides a range of equipment to help you live independently, whether it’s equipment for your home, or things to help you whilst out and about. Somerset residents can borrow equipment for as long as needed from this service, which includes delivery and fitting, servicing, collection, and recycling.

In most instances, to access equipment or wheelchairs you’ll need to be assessed by a health or social care professional. You can contact Somerset Council to ask about, or request an assessment. Phone 0300 123 2224 or you can find out more about care assessments on this page. You may also find information to help you on Somerset Council’s equipment to help you page.
