Motability is a charity-led scheme in the UK that enables people to use the mobility allowances they receive from the Government to lease a new mobility scooter, motorised wheelchair or Motability car. The scheme currently supports around 650,000 people in the UK and has been running since 1978.

Motability is the charity which runs the Motability Scheme in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Their main focus is supporting people with disabilities achieve more independence and to help them find an affordable vehicle that they can use to improve day-to-day life.

They work with Motability dealers like Stoneacre across the UK to support claimants with finding the right vehicle that caters for their mobility needs. Motability helps make it more affordable for disabled people to improve their own mobility through the use of a car, scooter or wheelchair.
