Transport & mobility

As you progress through your rehabilitation program, you’ll probably be thinking about getting back behind the wheel of your car.

Your car may need to be adapted so you can drive it safely. You are entitled to funding for this — either to adapt your vehicle or to fully or part-fund the lease of a more suitable vehicle.

The process can be confusing and complicated, especially as some of these benefits are now being changed. We can provide advice and support:

  • We can explain the process involved in applying for Personal Independence Payments. If you are struggling with the forms, we can help you.
  • We can put you in touch with Motability — the national scheme which helps disabled people to lease a suitable car.

We can secure interim payments from the defendant’s insurer which you can use to top up your component of Personal Independence Payment and allow you to lease a larger or more comfortable vehicle.
