Motability Foundation - Reducing Barriers to Driving Grant Programme


Aims to help charities and organisations to improve and expand private transport options for disabled people and their families beyond the Motability Scheme. They can fund:

  • Activity which reduces or mitigates barriers to driving experienced by disabled people, without replicating the support offered by the Motability Scheme.
  • Continuation funding for 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.
  • Staff or volunteer training and costs.
  • Full cost recovery grants which includes indirect costs.
