How Brotherwood Can Help You

As an Occupational Therapist, it is important to consider your client’s comfort, inclusion, and safety when assessing the most suitable transport for their needs.  Our experienced team can help you to carry out full Transport Needs Assessments, and make recommendations or adjustments to suit your clients’ requirements.

Transport Needs Assessments

To help identify the most suitable mobility solution, we’ll discuss your client’s requirements and what they need from their vehicle. Whether you’re looking for your client’s first WAV or replacing an existing vehicle, our expert team are on hand to provide helpful advice and pressure-free consultation.

Needs Assessment

Free At-Home Demonstrations

After establishing your clients’ requirements by telephone or email, a home demonstration is vital to give your client the opportunity to try an accessible vehicle and ensure it suits their lifestyle. A Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle that works perfectly for wheelchair users, families and carers alike is an ideal outcome.
