Message from the Chief Executive
Welcome to the Cornwall Mobility website! My job is to ensure that we achieve our mission, which is to provide solutions, services, support and reassurance to people of all ages in the South West who face independence and mobility challenges.
Many people in Cornwall do not even realise that we are here – located right next to the Royal Cornwall Hospital at Treliske, and that we comprise the most advanced and complete centre of its type anywhere in the UK. A visit to Cornwall Mobility will therefore enable you to see just what is available should you or your family need this type of assistance at some point.
The trouble is that many of us do not have any idea of just what is available until someone in our family suffers from sudden illness or debilitation – and then we are not sure just who to turn to.
When you are in Truro why not drop in and see us – no appointment is necessary, just turn up – the parking is free – and this will enable you to have a look around, try out some of the equipment on show and benefit from the advice and professional expertise of our friendly highly-trained staff.
As well as dealing directly with members of the public we take referrals from all types of partner organisations including health professionals as well as Motability, car dealerships and the DVLA. We are of course always very happy for you also to visit in a professional capacity enabling you to keep abreast of new developments in this fast moving field.
Finally I would like to emphasise that we are an independent charity and are completely impartial in our choice of suppliers of services or equipment. We will always first assess your need before suggesting a solution to meet your particular circumstances.
I look forward to meeting you when you visit!
The Cornwall Mobility Centre
We are located on the Royal Cornwall Hospital campus at Treliske in Truro. We have 22 dedicated, highly experienced and committed staff members who deal with the multiple facets of mobility and independent living.
Our centre includes a showroom for independent living and mobility equipment, and extensive workshop facilities. We have adapted vehicles available for assessments and driving tuition. There is also a large conference room available for hire.
