The Motability Scheme enables people with a disability to lease a brand new car and have all the support they need to enjoy stress-free motoring. At Birchwood Ford, we are proud to provide a comprehensive service to Motability customers. Our dedicated Motability specialists can use their considerable expertise to guide you through every stage of the process, from determining eligibility to taking delivery of your brand new car.
If you have a disability and receive a government-funded mobility allowance, you are entitled to lease a car through the Motability Scheme. It works by using your weekly payment from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) or Veterans UK to pay for the lease on your Motability vehicle. Depending on the car that you choose, your mobility allowance may be fully used to cover the cost, or there may be some money left over each week. If this is the case, the remainder will be paid directly to you.
The Motability lease offers comprehensive support for motorists with a disability. The weekly payment covers most running costs, including:
At Birchwood, we have a wide range of vehicles available to lease through the Motability Scheme. Many of our practical and stylish models are subject to exclusive Motability offer.

The Motability Scheme is an independent not-for-profit organisation, which provides mobility solutions for people with disabilities.
It was established to provide disabled people with safe, reliable and affordable cars. Cars account for 99% of the Scheme's activities, with powered wheelchairs and scooters making up the remainder.
The Scheme works only because it brings together a number of essential elements:
In the UK, over 1.5 million disabled people qualify for the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance and over 17,000 qualify for the War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement. What a disabled person chooses to do with that money is entirely up to them. Currently, 400,000 disabled people have chosen to have their allowances paid to the Scheme to meet the cost of having a car, powered wheelchair or scooter through a contract hire or hire purchase arrangement.
Not only can you get a car on the scheme, but a wide range of adaptations and conversions can also be made to suit your individual needs. These include:
