Grants to Charities and Organisations

About our Grants to Charities and Organisations

In 2022 we launched new grant programmes to provide even more support to other charities and organisations in areas where our research and insight has shown opportunities to have the greatest impact for disabled people. These grant programmes will help to address the challenges that disabled people face accessing transport right now, while Motability continues its research and innovation work into longer-term solutions to make all transport accessible.


We are using £50 million of the donation we received in 2021 to expand our support for charities and other organisations for the next three financial years ending March 2025.


The first two new grant programmes, Community Transport, and Wheelchair Sector launched in April 2022 with the Research Grants and Active Travel Grants launched in June 2022. The launch of Travelling with Confidence and Reducing Barriers to Driving in August 2022 now completes the portfolio of grant programmes.


Charities and organisations can apply for grants from £100,000 up to £4 million.  Each application will be assessed consistently against our criteria to ensure fair and transparent awarding of funding and to deliver the greatest impact to as many disabled people as possible.


Motability is committed to our vision, that no disabled person shall be disadvantaged due to poor access to transportation. This includes all disabled people in need of assistance with their personal transportation, not just disabled people who choose to use the Motability Scheme.
