What is the Motability Scheme?
Motability is a national charity set up at the initiative of the Government, with all party support, in 1977 and incorporated by Royal Charter. Their objective is to help disabled people with their personal mobility.
- Direct and oversee the Motability Scheme, administered by Motability Operations, which includes the Car Scheme and the Powered Wheelchair and Scooter Scheme
- Manage the Government’s Specialised Vehicles Fund, specifically to help people who need a heavily adapted car
- Raise money for Motability Charitable Grants Programme to provide additional financial help to those people whose allowance does not cover the cost of the mobility solution they need.
Lease for Less than your Allowance
The Motability Scheme allows disabled people to lease a car by exchanging their Government funded Motability allowance.
