Car modification help??

Hi all, I was just wondering if it possible to get financial help to modify my car to hand controls? Let me start with the basics, I am only on pip for mobility so no mobility car! And I am on esa as I struggle to work. I would want the hand controls as when I’ve been out, most of the time I have to sit for a while as I struggle to move my feet between the pedals. It is an automatic car so that’s not an issue. Anybody got any ideas?..
Thanks Graham

@grahamjk , if you’ve been awarded the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of PIP, you would be eligible for a motability vehicle.

Otherwise, contact the MS Society (https://www.mssociety.org.uk/ms-resources/ms-your-mind-ms-helpline-here-you ) and see if they can help with a grant.

Alternatively, if you use your car for work, then see if this scheme could help, https://www.gov.uk/access-to-work/overview .
