British Wheelchair Basketball Teams Up with the Motability Scheme

A new partnership between the Motability Scheme and British Wheelchair Basketball will grow the inclusive sport’s grassroots programme, ‘Inspire a Generation’.

The partnership aims to support the growth of wheelchair basketball across the UK and improve access to inclusive sports for disabled people, as well as increase the awareness and understanding of the Motability Scheme.

Wheelchair basketball is a unique, inclusive sport that can be played by both disabled and non-disabled people.

“The Inspire a Generation programme transforms peoples’ lives by providing participants local access to wheelchair basketball within their own communities, so we are thrilled that through this partnership we will raise awareness of the programme, and together we will ensure that even more disabled people across the UK will benefit from the positive impact of wheelchair basketball," said Justine Baynes, CEO of British Wheelchair Basketball.

British Wheelchair Basketball will be offering a taster of the inclusive sport at The Big Event, the Motability Scheme’s flagship customer event, taking place at The NEC in Birmingham on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 May 2023.

"By partnering with innovative and like-minded organisations such as British Wheelchair Basketball we can bring the Scheme and all its benefits to a wider audience, increasing understanding and awareness of our offer,” said Andrew Miller, CEO of Motability Operations who deliver the Motability Scheme.

The Motability Scheme enables customers to exchange their mobility allowance for a car, WAV, scooter or powered wheelchair and has been helping disabled people and their families for over 40 years.
