Support our community equipment appeal

We want to say a huge thanks for your help in returning items of community equipment you no longer need. Since we began appealing for the return of equipment earlier in the year, we've seen a 20% increase in items sent back.

But we still need your help…

Surrey's Community Equipment Service lends out a range of equipment to help people stay independent and safe at home but many items never find their way back.

The pandemic means that the items are needed more than ever. When returned, they will be cleaned and recycled to support someone else who is in need.

The items that the service loans out include crutches, walking frames, specialist beds, shower and bathing aids, ceiling track hoists and slings, pressure care equipment, ramps and rails and toileting equipment.

Returning the items will help ensure that Surrey County Council and the NHS in Surrey, which work together to offer the equipment service with provider Millbrook Healthcare, can continue to support people to live independently in their homes and communities for as long as possible.

If you or a loved one has items that are no longer needed please contact Millbrook Healthcare on 0330 124 1247 or email
