Recharge point - You have the power!

People who use electric mobility scooters or wheelchairs have reported that they often feel anxious about being stranded by a flat battery. Negotiating steep roads and footpaths mean batteries run low more quickly and deter people from travelling longer distances. The RECHARGE Scheme™ services now offers peace of mind and confidence for people to participate within the community as they choose.

The RECHARGE Scheme™ services are offered in partnership with Councils, businesses/organisations and the wider community.  Collectively, we are committed to create a more accessible, inclusive and welcoming environment for people when they are out and about using their electric mobility scooter or wheelchair. This includes designated areas for people to safely recharge their electric mobility scooter or wheelchair battery, free of charge.  Being a not-for-profit entity means that everything RSA do is about building on our existing work while expanding our services to benefit as many people as possible.

RECHARGE logo stickers are displayed on the windows of participating businesses for scooter owners to easily spot. There are also RECHARGE logo stickers placed above or near power points to quickly ascertain which power point has been designated for use.
