What is Able Deen?

Helping to connect the community.

The Able Deen service will take our wheelchairs, scooters and volunteers to the four corners of Aberdeen to enable people to access their local services, facilities, shops etc.

We want you to tell us where you would like Able Deen to visit and what you would like it to help you be Able to do.
