Car mobility aids

Aids and devices for a car

A person with severe disabilities may apply for compensation for necessary modifications and/or additional devices and aids required by the disability. Financial assistance for a car or car-related aids and devices is granted on a discretionary basis primarily to young people and people of working age with severe disabilities but also to the everyday transport of a severely disabled child using an electric wheelchair. The conditions are: the applicant's severe disability, a regular and daily need for transport (e.g., journeys for work and study), the regular use of assistive equipment, and other possible reasons related to the disability, condition, or social life regarding the need for his or her own car.

More information is is available from the social workers at Disability Services.
