Gino, lives with his parents. His mum, Charlene leases a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) on the Motability Scheme.
“Before Motability, we used to have a vehicle, but it was not wheelchair suitable. I found out about the Motability Scheme and applied for a grant for a passenger WAV so we can get Gino in and out of the vehicle whilst he is in his wheelchair.”
“Gino has 1p36 Deletion Syndrome which causes epilepsy, global developmental delay, hearing loss and respiratory problems. He is a full-time wheelchair user,” Charlene explains.
If it wasn’t for Motability, we would still be struggling. We wouldn’t be able to afford a suitable car for Gino without them.”
“The vehicle is so much easier to transfer Gino in and out now he is getting older and heavier. He loves water play and getting out in the vehicle. We are now able to take him out as a family.
Motability are the easiest, most helpful company we have had the pleasure of speaking with. They make the whole process so easy and stress-free."
