    Hi @chichy
    Unfortunately we cant share any funding pages or requests for money on the community.  Best of luck with it though.

    Have you spoken to an Occupational Therapist about this?

    Another option would be to check if you can lease a scooter via the motability scheme. You'd need to be getting either DLA (disability living allowance) mobility component at the higher rate, or the enhanced motability component of PIP.

    You pay for the lease of the scooter by giving Motability part of your mobility component (they state that most of their scooters cost less to lease than the value of the weekly component). There is a non-refundable payment for most leasing agreements which they state is £100.

    You can find out more about the Motability scheme here.

    Hi...just an update.....Since 01/01/2018 the advance payment of £100 has been dropped entirely from the Motability scooter scheme.

    Best wishes.
