About the Family Fund Grant grant program
Families with children under three who are very ill or disabled and require a lot of mobility are the target audience for the Family Fund Mobility Support program.
In order to make transportation for your child easier and more practical, we can offer a short-term car-leasing package through the program. This will allow you to take your child to regular doctor’s visits or simply get around. Family Fund will pay the monthly rental installments for the length of the leased car, provided that they qualify for the program.
The period from birth and age three, at which point the national Motability system begins, is covered by the Family Fund Mobility Support program. From the age of two years and nine months, if your child still requires assistance with their movement, you can apply for Disability Living Allowance’s high rate mobility component and look into leasing possibilities through the national Motability scheme.

If you are employed and do not get benefits, your two most recent paystubs or bank statements showing your combined two months of income
- If you have one, a letter of disability benefits for your child
- The education plan that your child, if any, has
- A recent evaluation (within the last six months, for example) or a note from a professional regarding your child’s health or support requirements, if applicable
