Resource Library

The Resource Library is a free resource for all members. You may want to borrow equipment for a range of reasons:

  • To trial expensive equipment that you are considering purchasing to ensure it is right for you.
  • To borrow equipment for a specific need, for example to help you with travel on a holiday.
  • To get active and enjoy outdoor spaces.
  • To have move opportunities to play and learn new skills.

In order to avail of this service, you must be able to collect and return the equipment to our office in Larne. You must also agree to the terms and conditions of use – these can be viewed on the Resource Library Request and Consent form below.

This service is volunteer led and therefore it may take a little longer for us to get back to you, please allow 7 days. If you have an urgent request, contact our office on 03006001166.

If there is an item we do not have, that you would like to borrow, please email resourcelibrary@maemurrayfoundation.org with your suggestion (additional equipment is subject to funding and meeting the criteria for this project).
