Be Independent, York’s provider of equipment and response service is working with hoteliers and self-catering and B&B owners in York to make the city more accessible for visitors.

Be Independent supplies bespoke packages of equipment to accommodation providers in the city. This enables people with personal equipment needs to enjoy a short-break knowing their equipment needs will be met; reducing the anxieties of staying away from home. The scheme works by guests pre-ordering their equipment so it is installed for their arrival at their accommodation.

Be_Independent_LogoBe Independent’s Chief Executive, Heather Barden said: “This is a great opportunity for people to enjoy a short-break in York safe in the knowledge the equipment they rely on at home will be installed in their accommodation for their arrival.

None of our equipment requires drilling or screwing to the walls or furniture so can be installed and removed without any marks or damage to the property.  This means that we are able to make any accommodation suitable for people with equipment needs.

We look forward to welcoming more people to York to enjoy our beautiful city.”

Be Independent can provide a range of equipment including: raised toilet seats, toilet frames, perching stools, shower boards, mobile hoists, Easy-Fit bed rails, wheelchairs etc.
