Special Grant Programme

Motability's vision is that no disabled person shall be disadvantaged due to poor access to transportation.  In order to achieve this, we constantly look for and develop new solutions to meet the changing transportation needs of disabled people.

Based on Motability's research, we have identified two initial priority areas where we believe there is the greatest potential to improve access to transportation for disabled people. We are developing individual strategies for each, which will deliver sustainable, long term benefits for disabled people.

Further information on our current priority areas can be found on our Research and Innovation page .

One important way in which Motability supports work in these priority areas, is by providing financial support to other charities or non-profit organisations who share our ambition to develop new routes to impact for disabled people. Our Special Grant Programme enables us to provide this support.

Organisations supported by the Special Grant Programme will have been recognised by our Governors as having the potential to deliver innovative and impactful solutions that address significant issues in these priority areas, and empower disabled people through transport solutions.

The Special Grant Programme is currently by invitation only while we work to understand our new priority areas in depth and develop our approach to impact.

Further information on the Special Grant Programme, including the support Motability is able to provide to organisations, can be found in this guidance note Will download a resource(PDF 99KB) .

If you have any questions or would like to be kept updated on funding opportunities within our priority areas please get in touch at .

At Motability, we aim to support as many disabled people as possible with the financial cost of their transportation needs. We believe in supporting the independence of disabled people through the provision of grants to help with personal or other transportation.
