Independence Mobility began life back in 2004 on an outside stall on Leeds Market before moving to a small retail outlet on York Road in Leeds. We initially sold entry-level wheelchairs, scooters and beds directly to end-users with basic needs.
Today, we are an established and well-respected provider of specialist healthcare equipment, supplying an extensive range of products that cater for a wide range of basic and complex needs. We still support end-customers directly but also now has very close links with occupational therapists, physiotherapists and other healthcare professionals throughout the NHS, as well as case management companies across the region.
For the future, we're committed to continued growth. We make sure we keep up-to-date with new technologies and we'll continue to develop our product range to make new technologies a reality for our customers – whether that’s directly to the end user or through our work supporting clinical professionals. Our links with the leading equipment manufacturers enables us to remain completely impartial and recommend the very best equipment for a client’s needs without any limitation.
How we work and how we are perceived by our customers is incredibly important to us. Our core company values help to guide us to deliver the very best for our customers and are a reminder of who we are and what we stand for.
We’re passionate about changing lives for the better through the provision of mobility equipment and our support. It’s what the business was founded for and it remains at our heart today.
We're proud of our honest approach to ensure customers get the best solution for their needs. We’re genuine and impartial in the advice we give and the equipment we recommend.
When we make a commitment to a customer (whether a healthcare professional or an end-user) we’ll go out of our way to make sure that we honour it. Reliability is at our core.
We’re incredibly proud of the work we do and the way in which we work with OTs, physios and other healthcare professionals - helping them to make a difference to peoples’ lives.
Small details make a big difference to our customers, so we ensure equipment is set up correctly and everyone knows how to use it. We'll also make bespoke adaptations if needed.
There’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach when it comes to mobility equipment but our determined team are masters at thinking outside-of-the-box to find innovative solutions.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
As a Leeds-based company, supporting our community is incredibly important to us.
Over the last 6 months, we've run some in-house initiatives to collect donations for local charities, but going forward, we wanted to do more. So this year, our team have all had an input and we've chosen a Charity of the Year. Our Charity of the Year for this year is...Leeds Mind.
Leeds Mind supports the people of Leeds and surrounding areas to discover their own resources to 'recover' from periods of poor mental health, and to live life independently with their mental health condition.
1 in 4 people experience mental health difficulties in their lives, whether that be depression, anxiety, isolation, stress, self-harm, personality disorder, bereavement, or any other negative mental health experience.
Many of us here at Independence Mobility have been touched by mental health challenges - whether that's ourselves, family members, friends, or work colleagues - so the decision to support Leeds Mind this year was an easy one.
To raise money, we're planning some company-wide challenges, plus we'll be supporting some of the fantastic events that Leeds Mind have planned in the months ahead.
Please help us to achieve our goal by donating anything that you can via our Just Giving page. Even a small amount helps to make a big difference to someone who turns to Leeds Mind for help.
