WAV for our disabled daughter

Hi All,
A bit of help here..... ;)
Our daughter is entitled to higher rate motability and previously could get into a car by herself.

Now things have changed, she is now wheelchair bound and needs a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV). So, for the first time in 30 years we applied for motability only to be told that, as she is a resident in a NURSING home, she is not entitled to a vehicle.

The home does have a couple of WAV buses, but we want the WAV so that we can collect her and take her places without having to rely on the home for transport or diverting their transport away from the other residents (especially in the week when they are used to take residents to appointments).

In summary, is it worth appealing the decision, how do we appeal and has anyone had any success appealing?

With love and thanks,

Jules and Diana
