If you have an injury or illness, the British Red Cross can provide short-term loans of wheelchairs and other equipment.
Items available can include:
- Bath seats,
- Walking sticks or walking frames,
- Commodes, bedpans and urinals
- Toilet seat raisers
This service is free, however they welcome donations to ensure that the service can be continued. There is a small charge to borrow the commode pots, to cover the parts that cannot be reused for hygiene reasons. (Checked January 2018)
