About Us

Motivation is a Bristol-based international development charity and social enterprise. As well as designing and manufacturing their own special range of wheelchairs, Motivation provides training and practical support to ensure that individuals develop confidence, self-esteem and skills to use their wheelchair. They also help disabled people, their families and communities to fight stigma and understand their rights. Last year their work had a direct benefit on the lives of 16,000 people and a further 58,000 disabled people were reached through their work influencing the product design and practices of others.
