Do you find it hard to get to places? Whether you are doing some shopping, going to a hospital appointment, getting to work, or attending Carers’ groups, there is support available to help you get about.
National schemes include the Blue Badge Parking Scheme which enable you to park closer to where you are going if you have walking or other mobility problems; and Motability, a mobility allowance from the government to help with leasing a new car, scooter or powered wheelchair.
For outline information on Motability, check out this information page on the Carers’ Trust website.
You may be able to get discounts on public transport or vehicle tax. There may be local transport support schemes available to you too – speak to us about help with arranging transport and finding ways to fund it.
