  • Leasing or buying Community Transport vehicles
  • Initiatives to influence transport strategy, policy and funding.
  • Partnerships/collaborations which drive efficiency at the organisational and systems level.
  • Best practice interventions to continue/scale up work.

Wheelchair Sector Grants should be used to:

  • Help individuals to source quality equipment by topping up self-funding.
  • Raise awareness of the challenges faced by disabled people in obtaining suitable, quality and affordable wheelchairs.
  • Develop or improve programmes which fund high quality and affordable equipment.
  • Support existing initiatives which provide best practice solutions but need further support to remain operational or expand.
