Help for my Disabled Car Hand Controls

10 years ago after a motorbike accident I was left paralysed from the chest down.

I am very grateful for the fact that technology today allows me to still be able to drive and without this my freedom would be still be possible but a lot harder.

This past year has been quite difficult with illness and has limited how much I am able to work.

I am lucky that I am able to get my car on our countrys Mobility scheme which is great.  I still have to pay for the hand controls that fit into my car though and for the ones that make it easy for me to drive are very expensive.

I don't like to ask for help but I feel I have nowhere to turn at the moment.  Anything you can do to help me would be greatly appreciated .

Thank you so much in advance!
