NHS Wheelchair Services

The NHS will provide a wheelchair on loan or through the voucher scheme. They will provide what they assess you to need and may not provide a powered wheelchair.

Access to Work

Buying a powered wheelchair is a vital decision so it’s important to get it right first time. There are no independent product tests, meaningful reviews or simple guidance to help

If you're in work, or looking for work, the Access to Work Scheme may support you with a grant towards equipment you need, including a powered wheelchair.

Paying for a powered wheelchair yourself

If you can’t get public funding for a powered wheelchair you may have to pay for it yourself - see links below.


The Motability Scheme allows you to use certain disability benefits to lease a powered wheelchair.

Charities that fund mobility equipment

If you don't have the money you can try to get a charity to provide a grant. They all support different types of people and have different rules.
