Veterans Mobility Fund

25 February 2016


The Ministry of Defence has put in place measures to ensure that a service person discharged with service-attributable serious physical injury will have any clinically prescribed specialist wheelchair or orthotic equipment by discharge date together with a five-year warranty.

The Veterans Mobility Fund (VMF) will support those veterans who have service-related serious physical injury who fall outside this provision or whose warranty has expired. To be eligible for VMF an individual will normally be in receipt of a War Pension or have received an award under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme. If you have a client who may benefit from this fund, they can visit the Veterans UK website or call the British Legion on 0808 802 808 for assistance in submitting an application.

There are two stages to the application process. The first stage assesses eligibility, which will require evidence of their War Pension or award under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme. The second stage will be completed and submitted by clinicians - typically through Disablement Services Centres in England, or equivalents in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
