Help from the Spanish authorities
Depending on your circumstances and your condition, UK nationals resident in Spain may be able to access mobility equipment via the Spanish national health service (servicio público de salud) or their local town hall social service/social care department.
If you believe you might need equipment for a short-term illness or medical condition, please see your local public health service doctor. For details on seeing a doctor, please click here.
If you believe you need mobility equipment for a longer or indefinite period, you should apply as soon as possible via your local town hall-based social care workers (trabajadores sociales) for an assessment of your needs.
It may take some time for your need to be assessed and any equipment you are entitled to provided, so it is important to start this process as soon as possible.

Help from voluntary organisations and other groups
Several different charities, voluntary organisations or other support groups have told us they may have small amounts of mobility equipment available.
Please note that the type and amount of equipment available will vary. Some groups may ask for a small hire charge or a donation and may only be able to lend for a short period of time. Others may have certain criteria specific to their organisation (for example, a past association with the armed forces in the case of the Royal British Legion).
Please click on the link below for more information of the organisations that have told us that they may be able to help with mobility equipment.
