Our History

Ableworld first store in Nantwich

Ableworld was born after one person’s vision of making people’s lives easier. The aim was to be able to provide independence to people who may have difficulties and to be able to provide them with whatever they need in order to overcome their difficulty.

Founded in 2000 by Managing Director Mike Williams, Ableworld was launched after 3 long years of research after Mike experienced difficulty when shopping for mobility aids for an elderly relative. The general perception of the mobility trade was target driven sales people who would pressure sell to the elderly and vulnerable, and he was determined to make a change to help the community

He scoured the industry, visiting mobility stores nationwide, getting opinions from professionals and laying the groundwork into building his dream into a reality. That day came in 2001 when Ableworld opened its first store in Nantwich. 

 Ableworld continues to grow daily as our customers appreciate that all of the staff are there to help rather than just sell items, so the mission statement remains at the heart of everything we do.

Ableworld currently operates over 30 mobility and stairlift stores around the UK with a vision of continuing to expand and provide support to more customers around the UK.
