Good news for under 3s mobility support
“Family Fund Mobility Support aims to help families raising a disabled or seriously ill child under 3 years old to meet their mobility needs through a car leasing package for a limited period.” (www.familyfund.org.uk).
This is great news for many families, as previously mobility payments and the motability scheme have only been available to those over 3 years of age, regardless of what any additional needs may be. So for those who have to have bulky medical equipment, and/or need access to a vehicle incase they need treatment for example, this new initiative will no doubt be most welcome.
