Having my vehicle means everything to me and my family

Charlie was able to order a WAV through Motability's Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle Grant. 

Charlie, lives in London and has leased vehicles on the Motability Scheme since the age of five. He has cerebral palsy and asthma, and uses a wheelchair. Charlie’s ambition is to work with animals one day, so he currently attends college where he is studying animal care. 

Charlie is looking really happy as he goes up the ramp of his WAV, with family by his side watching on, smiling too
“I really enjoy going out with my family in the vehicle and feel included sitting with them.”

Charlie received a grant towards his Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV), which enables him to go to college and go out and enjoy doing the things he likes such as bowling and playing golf. Charlie has a big family and loves visiting and spending time with them.

“Having my vehicle means everything to me and my family. We are able to go out on day trips together just like everyone else – I especially like going to the seaside. It’s a super cool vehicle and I would recommend the Motability Scheme to anyone in my position.”

“Thank you to Motability for making this possible for me and my family. Without their financial help I wouldn’t have the freedom I have.”
