Emergency Services

In an emergency you can contact the Police, Ambulance or Fire Brigade by calling 999 from any phone within the UK. Public call boxes do not charge for this call. All UK mobile phones also are free, but connection will depend on a signal being locally available. In an emergency remain calm and try to answer as many details as the emergency operator requests; these will assist the emergency services in prioritising your call and with the allocation of the appropriate response to your call. Please note heavy penalties can be issued as a result from hoax 999 calls.

To report a crime after it has occurred call the Surrey Police non-urgent line on 0845 125 2222

Accessible Leatherhead

There are car parking spaces for disabled badge holders in all the main car parks and valid blue badge holders can park for free in all Mole Valley car parks including the Swan Centre multi-storey car park.

There is a disabled w.c. located in the Swan Shopping Centre which is operated by a RADAR key.

A shopmobility scheme also operates on a Tuesday and Thursday between 11am and 2pm. The scheme allows members to borrow an electric scooter or a manual wheelchair to aid their shopping experience. The shopmobility office is situated on level 2 of the Swan Centre car park. It is recommended that you book in advance of your visit (telephone 01372 362400).

The Chamber of Commerce, local traders, Town Centre Management and Mole Valley Access Group work very hard to ensure that not only are as many shops and business premises as possible accessible, but that staff training also takes into account the varying requirements of disabled people.

Schools

Leatherhead and the surrounding villages are well served for all types of school, whether it is independent or state run and covering all ages and abilities.
