The event will be opened by Sue Rogers MBE, Manager for Mobility Centres in England.

Alongside the different assessments and experiences, there will be exclusive talks about recent changes to the Motability Scheme and break-out seminars for Approved Driving Instructors at the open day.

In addition, QEF’s partner charity MERU will be offering free adaptations for children’s toys, so they can be used with an accessible switch. These switches enable disabled children to play with their toys and join in with family and friends.

The QEF Mobility Open Day will run on the 9th of October 2019 from 10am-3pm at QEF Mobility Services, 1 Metcalfe Avenue, Carshalton, SM5 4NR.
