Kevin has cerebral palsy and hydrocephalus and uses a wheelchair. He explains what a difference the Scheme vehicle has made to his life.
I heard about the Scheme from a family friend. I leased my first vehicle back in 2003 and I have been leasing vehicles ever since.
Kevin doesn’t drive, but has carers who visit him and they are able to drive the vehicle for him.
Even though I don’t drive, I can still be a passenger in the vehicle and my carers are able to take me out shopping. With their help I am still able to visit friends and family and access the community in my local town.”
Before Motability, I found it hard as I had to be manually lifted in and out of my car. It was difficult for me and for those caring for me. Now, I am able to get into my vehicle whilst still in my wheelchair which is safer for everyone.
The WAV has made such a positive difference to my life and I just want to spread the word about Motability and what a fantastic experience I have had with them for the last 18 years. I have still been able to keep my independence, which I’m extremely grateful for.
