The Motability Scheme
Since it was established in 1978, the Motability scheme has been helping over 600,000 people claim back their independence by making brand new cars more accessible for those with disabilities.
If either you or a family member are disabled and receive the allowances to qualify for the scheme, you could take advantage of accessing a brand-new car every 3 years, removing most of the stress that comes with owning and running a vehicle for a longer period of time.
