The Motability Scheme plays a vital role in the lives of many disabled people by supporting their mobility through the provision of a car, scooter or powered wheelchair.
The Department of Work and Pensions and Motability have been working closely to help people affected by reassessment from Disability Living Allowance to Personal Independence Payments.
Therese said: "As a result of that work Motability has kindly offered to enhance their Disability Living Allowance - Personal Independence Payment Transitional Support package to allow scheme customers to retain the car for up to eight weeks after their Disability Living Allowance payments end, a significant increase from the three weeks they are allowed currently.
In addition customers who are eligible for a transitional support payment will be able to retain their car for up to six months, including during the processes of reconsideration or appeal."
