Motability - Wheelchair Sector Grant Programme


Aims to support charities and organisations to make an immediate impact for disabled people, by awarding funding to improve and expand their access to good quality affordable wheelchairs. Priorities for this programme are:

  • Funding to fill current gaps in provision for groups of people who are excluded from receiving help from existing sources/providers.
  • Funding to enable charities and organisations to help individuals by topping up self-funding.
  • Funding raising awareness of the challenges faced by disabled people in obtaining suitable, quality and affordable wheelchairs.
  • Funding programmes to help fund high quality and affordable equipment.
  • Funding to schemes, programmes and initiatives that already exist, and who provide best practice solutions, but need further support to remain operational or scale up the service they can provide to help more disabled people.

Grants can cover continuation funding for work which currently exists within the themes including essential costs such as staff salaries, new innovative projects, capital costs towards equipment.
