"Creating more accessible and inclusive communities ..."
Welcome to the RECHARGE Scheme™ services’ website.
This site has been developed to support people who use an electric mobility scooter or wheelchair. You can now find one of many 'RECHARGE Point You Have the Power™' (RECHARGE Point™) locations to plan your trip accordingly. We’re proud that users of the RECHARGE Scheme™ services are experiencing a greater sense of freedom and increased confidence!
The RECHARGE Scheme™ services began in the Shire of Nillumbik in 2006. Over a thousand welcoming and inclusive organisations and businesses currently bear the RECHARGE Point™ logo at their premises. Only organisations and businesses who meet our Best Practice criteria are considered for entry on the Official Register of authorised locations, found through our 'RECHARGE finder'. You can be reassured by the RECHARGE brand that thousands of people have come to know and trust. Each participating business or organisation seeks to enhance your experience as a valued customer.
The RECHARGE Scheme™ services are making a big difference in people’s lives.
“I think it’s a great Scheme. It will help a lot people to get out more on their scooters and not have to worry about running out of charge in their batteries. Thank you all for your helping hands in making it easier for us to go out and about again.” Laurence H
Please encourage your family and friends to shop at businesses and organisations who support the RECHARGE Scheme™ services through offering a welcoming and inclusive customer experience.
The majority of Victoria's 79 local councils are committed to offering RECHARGE Scheme™ services across metropolitan and regional communities.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our site and happy travelling!
