Last month we had the pleasure of appearing at one of the Limbless Associations’ Virtually Speaking themed talks.
The Limbless Association is a charity that offers practical and emotional support to amputees throughout their pre- and post-amputation journey. The process of losing a limb can be extremely overwhelming, and there are many new challenges to be overcome. The Limbless Association works to ensure an amputee is never disadvantaged by their disability. They want amputees to be able to achieve rehabilitation and independence in hospital, home, education, employment and the community.
As followers of our #EverydayFreedom campaign will know, we want as many people as possible to enjoy the independence a vehicle brings. Our wide range of cars, scooters, WAVs and vehicle adaptations mean the joys of driving are available to so many. For this reason, it was a real pleasure to be invited to speak to the Limbless Associations’ community and share more about the opportunities and experiences a Motability Scheme vehicle can offer.
The ‘Virtually Speaking’ attendees heard Motability Operations employees, Delia Ray, Harry Morgan-James, and Robert Parker, give an interesting overview of how the Scheme works, the range of Scheme vehicles available (including scooters and powered wheelchairs) and in-depth information on car adaptations and WAVs. We’d like to thank the Limbless Association for being such great hosts and all the attendees for a range of insightful questions.
If you were unable to attend the talk at the time, or would like to refresh your memory, you can watch the talk here on the Limbless Association website.
About the Motability Scheme
The Motability Scheme supports families in staying mobile by offering a unique, all-inclusive leasing package for brand new cars from all the major manufacturers. If you care for a child or someone who doesn’t drive, you can be added as a named driver instead. And as well as cars from a range of manufacturers, cars with adaptations, Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles, scooters and powered wheelchairs are available too.
