Can I apply for financial help?
If you are unable to afford the right mobility solution to meet your needs, Motability, the Charity, may be able to provide financial help. This help includes grants towards Advance Payments for cars, Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs), driving lessons and adaptations.
To make the best use of their charitable funds, Motability award grants which are cost effective solutions based upon the individual disabled person’s mobility needs and not wants.
All grant applications are means-tested to ensure Motability supports those most in need of a charitable grant and to ensure they helps as many beneficiaries as possible with the charitable funds available.
Please note: Motability are not able to award a grant if you have already ordered your vehicle. This is because when you place an application for a grant, your Case Manager will consider your individual circumstances and confirm which vehicles the charity is prepared to fund based on your mobility needs, not wants.
Grants are awarded in line with Motability’s policies and following thorough consideration of the information submitted in the application. All grant awards are final, except in cases where additional compelling information is provided. Applications that Motability considers do not meet their funding priorities will not receive grant funding.
