This year, Motability, the Charity, is launching six new grant programmes, committing £50 million in funding over the next three financial years to organisations across the UK who can help fill gaps in existing transport services for disabled people. The first two programmes -Community Transport and Wheelchair Sector grants, launched in April and Motability is still actively encouraging organisations to apply for funding.
Today, Motability is launching another two new programmes – Active Travel Grants and Research Grants. These are two key areas where our research and insight through engagement has shown that providing grant funding to other charities and organisations will have a great impact. This could be through identifying and understanding problems and finding potential solutions, or by helping disabled people right now to make more of the journeys they want to, while Motability continues its research and innovation work into longer-term solutions to make all transport accessible.
