Keep on Moving in Wirral (MDF0666)

Keep on Moving

"Keep on Moving" is a new Social Enterprise - helped through the Employable Communities Fund - that repairs motorised scooters, powered chairs and wheel chairs for anyone on the Wirral. Punctures, battery problems, minor faults, bodywork damage, tyres and brakes - all can be diagnosed and repaired, and chairs can be collected and delivered as needed.

They already have over 70 satisfied clients - but another vital part of project is the training provided. This training has given five disabled people, including people with learning difficulties, an opportunity to gain confidence, and to get new skills (for example in basic repairs and in workplace practices) so that they can move towards employment.

As well as help from the European Social Fund’s Employable Communities Fund, this project has been supported by:

  • Wirral Local Strategic Partnership
  • Your Wirral
  • Community Foundation for Merseyside
  • Merseyside Expanding Horizons, and 
  • Wirral Biz.
