HAD's Hire Chair Service Project

We would like to introduce a hire chair service aimed at two target audiences - people nearing the end of life and those not able to afford to buy chairs. As many people are finding it difficult to afford expensive mobility items including rise and recline chairs, this service is greatly needed.

Comfortable, practical, made-to-measure mobility equipment for older and disabled people can be expensive and often beyond the means of many of our customers. This is particularly true of special rise and recline chairs.


A chair hire service will enable many of our customers to benefit from a comfortable, made to measure product for a fraction of the cost of buying one. It will be particularly appropriate for people nearing end of life. The service will include the cost of the chair as well as delivery, cleaning and protective covering.
