Adult funding for mobility equipment

kimbaj23 Member Posts: 1
My husband has cerebral palsy and is a wheelchair user. We have a Daughter and Son on the way. Six years ago we took out a large loan to purchase his chair, however, it is now on its last legs and we have only just finished the repayments of the loan.
With a family to support and the rise in living costs, we just can't afford to take out another loan, but my husband needs a decent chair A) To live a normal family life and be active with our children B) To work, and support his family, just as any able bodied Husband/Father does.
The reason for joining this community is to seek help in obtaining some sort of funding for or towards a new chair. I'm not sure if this is possible for adults, but am looking for help, advice or just a point in the right direction.
