hello,

I’m a full time electric wheelchair user and been on high rate DLA (care and mobility) since about 10 years old, disabled from birth.


So, anyway, I am currently on my 3rd motability car which I have always got with a motability grant. As at the time I was at college and uni. I am now in a decent paying job but (savings as yet only £1000) and so I am wondering if anyone knows the threshold for the motability grant? Savings and income wise? I’m just really worrying that come February I’m not going to be able to get to /from work due to my van needing to be returned and not being able to afford the advanced payment and adaptions to the van.

Our income is being swallowed up as we are currently going through private ivf so having to fund that as not entitled to nhs funded ivf.

Just wanting to set my own expectations and be prepared for when my current van lease is up.

thanks

Amy

    Heya @wheelsonwheels and welcome to the community. :)

    I'm not 100% on Motability goings on unfortunately, but I did find this page which details the different grants. I'll pop your questions over into the Transport category, so more people in the know will be able to see it and hopefully offer some top advice. 😊
