A Renfrewshire charity that helps people with mobility issues is stepping up its efforts to be an advocate for its members.

Shopmobility Renfrewshire, formally known as Shopmobility Paisley and  District, has recently been reviewing its services.

The charity is now aiming to spread further awareness about mobility issues through its connections within various networks such as RenSEN (Renfrewshire Social Enterprise Network) and the Renfrewshire Council's Town Centre and Villages Accessibility Forum.

Recently, office manager and funding officer Karen Miller, along with treasurer Margaret Dymond, took part in the Scottish Parliament's summit to mark International Day of Persons with Disabilities event on Saturday, November 25.

Ms Miller said: "We are involved in more and more networks and are using our role to advocate on behalf of our members and everyone in Renfrewshire with a mobility problem.

"It's important that their voices are heard so that any plans for the future reflect of their needs.

"It was great to take part in the Summit to mark International Day of Persons with Disabilities, and it was good of the Scottish Parliament to open up this event to groups like ours which have so much experience and knowledge in this area.

"We were happy to contribute to this summit and will continue raising our voices whenever we can for those with mobility problems."
