We co-ordinate a pan-London network of inclusive cycling projects via Cycling for All, offer advice, training and consultancy on access, disability and equality issues and share our unique experience with other charities, businesses and local and national government.

Blue Badge Style

Blue Badge Style ensures that wherever you go or whatever you do it is a positive, cool, fashionable and elegant experience. Whether Able Bodied or not. Fiona Jarvis established this site in 2007. She first realised she might have MS when she kept falling off her high-heels! 'People thought I was drunk - and that was the confusing thing, as I could have well been.' That was 20 years ago and today she uses a wheel chair to glide through life. 'I have always refused to give up being stylish, whether thatís eating in smart restaurants, wearing elegant clothes or going on glamorous holidays'. Style and disability are not mutually exclusive and Blue Badge Style can help you to have a positive, cool, elegant experience. As Coco Chanel said, "fashion fades, only style remains the same".

They take the time to discover the customers needs and match this with the relevant product. This is done with the utmost care making sure that it is the customer who comes first.

    Heidi B
  • "My department has been provided with an exemplary service from Better Mobility for over three years. Their expertise, professionalism and experience is second to none and they willingly go 'that extra mile'."
    R.C. BSC (Hons), MSc, PGCE.
  • "So pleased that I chose Better Mobility to help me select my first wheelchair. Their friendly and knowledgeable staff advised me on which wheelchair was best for my needs, set it up to suit me and even, after a few days of my using it, finally adjusted it to perfection. Itís daunting choosing a wheelchair but Better Mobility staff took the time to make sure that I got the right one for me."
    Ian S.
  • "Better Mobility totally lives up to their name by not only providing you with the knowledge and equipment to move forward with life but also the confidence in knowing that they're only a phone call away if you need anything else."
    Nick G.
  • "I just wanted to give some feedback about our experience so far with your company.

    As you gathered this matter was one of some urgency, and we were so very grateful that you pulled out all the stops, and put a lot of effort into getting our patient his tilt in space wheelchair so promptly, boosting his chances of being accepted for rehab (the assesments today).

    Tom was exceptionally helpful and professional - making sure that everything that needed to be done was achieved quickly and efficiently. I've been in the NHS for a few decades now and I really value people who get things done , and who can be friendly and flexible at the same time.

    And then the delivery and professional assessment/adjustment: Annette (I hope that's right) was also very friendly and professional, a great communicator and importantly had a great deal of knowledge and expertise. The patient was understandably anxious -and she was able to put him at his ease, and confidently and competently get him in a very good position. His smile said it all. She was very informative, friendly and reassuring to the patient's family, (and not in the least bit fazed by being shut in the tiny bathroom with them while we hoisted him).The young man with her was also very helpful.

    I just wanted to say thank you,

    Best regards,"

    A.V. (OT)
  • ""My mother was delighted to receive her new wheelchair so quickly. Thank-you for arranging such a prompt delivery; ordered Monday pm, delivered Wednesday am.""
    L.Grant
  • "I am so happy I made a phone call to Better Mobility - it was the start of a journey to get a wheelchair that has made a huge difference to my life.
    I am so impressed with their knowledge, expertise, patience, understanding and above all their customer care. They have helped me find a chair that makes my life more comfortable in so many ways. The whole team has been attentive and polite, with the added bonus of canine cuddles!
    Not only does my husband appreciate my new wheels, but my 5 year old son thinks they are amazing and is already far too protective of them!
    Once again, thank you Better Mobility!"

    Naomi Masters
  • "Dear Sir....
    I am sure the overlay will help my wife to overcome her bedsores, she likes it! Thank you very much for your kind and prompt attention. Tom did all that I required and I would recommend you, any time, to anyone.
    Thanks again,"

    John Keen
  • "I just cannot praise Tom Alexander and Better Mobility enough. From the placing of my order [which I stupidly did wrongly] so I had to return the walker and when I received the replacement walker I was in heaven, it was just what I should have ordered in the first place! Thank you so very much for your brilliant service and care."
    Judith Bowyer
  • "Chair ordered online arrived exactly as planned.Thanks for excellent customer service and the personal touch!"
    J Hutton
  • "Needed new cover for a bathlift seat. Contacted Better Mobility and was really impressed with the service. Tom got back to me via e-mail within a very short time. Cover was ordered on Monday pm and arrived Tuesday am, couldn't have had better service. Brilliant, would recommend to anyone needing mobility aids."
    Linda Wright
  • "Jeanette and Lee Warner, who run Better Mobility, have been a pleasure to deal with right from the get go, to the present day. They went out of their way and organised a demo for an electric chair I was interested way back in 2011. As soon as I decided to go ahead with the purchase, they organised all the customization I required with my seating. The whole process was smooth and fast. I was very impressed. Much better than my previous experience with other mobility companies. I fully recommend Better Mobility, all the way from their friendly advice, purchase process and maintenance of your mobility equipment if anything does indeed go wrong with your equipment during your everyday use. Better Mobility have been able to fix my chair on multiple times, very quickly and have dealt with the insurance company for me too. A star service."
    D Jose
  • "Iíve had the privilege of working with Better Mobility as a Specialist Occupational Therapist dealing with clients who have neurological diagnoses both at a private hospital in London as well as an independent practitioner. The staff at Better Mobility are extremely helpful, accommodating (would definitely bend over backwards to get you what you want), friendly and approachable. It is a very professional team with extensive knowledge of seating and mobility equipment who is focused on continued development of their skills in order to best suit a clientís needs in line with the latest technological advances. Their approach to joint working with Occupational Therapists makes for a great team combining clinical posture and seating assessment skills of the OT with their expert knowledge of equipment. I would definitely recommend them."
    NT Independent Neuro OT
  • "Thank you so much, you are without doubt a true find. I broke down and was told without any one even looking at my Invacare Mirage, it is your batteries. Better Mobility were able to diagnose that it wasnít in fact the batteries and were able to fix the issue over the phone at no cost. Thank you so much, if you need integrity, reliability and honesty, Better Mobility should be your first port of call. I shall recommend you to all my disabled friends and pals. You made a 60 year man jump for joy, you made me SO HAPPY, my hard working wife thanks you from the bottom of her heart."
    Graham and Dianne
  • "Thank you for organising the frame! You are a legend!"
    C.R
  • "I have worked with Better Mobility for over 3 years as an occupational therapist in neurorehabiliton and I have always found them to be extremely helpful. I really value their extensive knowledge of products available and their helpful attitude makes them my first choice for wheelchair provision. The staff have a flexible and accommodating approach and have often gone the extra mile to help provide a patient with the product they need. I continue to work with them and would definitely recommend them to friends and colleagues. "
    Aisling
  • "The Wheelchair we bought from you was the best and most aesthetic chair we looked at and many people have commented on its quality and advanced features. I am very happy with it. It was a pleasure to do business with you."
    William Rae
  • ""I needed to purchase a new set of Round Betty Dino wheels for my wheelchair after years of battering finally got the better of my old pair, and rather than return automatically to my previous supplier, decided to search online to see if a better deal could be found. Supply in the UK was limited, but the best price I could find was from Better Mobility which was cheaper than my original supplier and I duly placed my order. This process was extremely straight forward and I was advised to allow 3 weeks for delivery as the wheels were constructed in USA and would obviously need to be shipped. The wheels actually arrived in two weeks and I was advised of their imminent arrival by email; a follow up mail was also received to check that I had received the items. Overall Better Mobility provided and excellent service, reasonable pricing, quick delivery and superb customer care and I will have no hesitation on going to them first for any mobility needs that I may have"."
    Matt Anderson
  • "Great working with Craig who has been brilliant with all my clients and the many varied complex requests"
    Regina Sing, Neuro Occupational Therapist
  • "Hi Craig

    Just wanted to say a big thank you for yesterday to you and Andrew for all your efforts to send me away happy. So far so good 👍. There are no creaks or cracks and it feels different and whizzes along very smoothly, so far.

    I hope to leave you alone now to enjoy Christmas and the New Year. Again thanks for the coffees, use of facilities and not making me feel a pain.

    Kind regards

    Lindsay"

    Lindsay Allen
  • "Hi,
    I have now had two wheelchairs from Better Mobility and I just want to say a big thank you to everyone and especially to Craig. Kind, patient, skilled, knowledgeable, always willing to answer questions and nothing is ever too much trouble. I have been helped and supported to find the right chair for me and my circumstances. Having the right wheelchair makes a massive difference to me and allows me get out and enjoy my life. I can't recommend Better Mobility highly enough, as a company they really care about their customers.
    Thanks Again
    Sarah "

    Sarah
  • "Yet again Better Mobility saves the day I have had my Invacare Mirage for about 8 years whilst searching for some one who may have a front caster tyre and came across some pictures of a Mirage folded so rang to ask and got all the answers 1,000,000 thanks"
