State Wide Equipment Program (SWEP)
What is SWEP?
The State-wide Equipment Program (SWEP) is managed by Ballarat Health Services. SWEP manages a number of different 'assistive technology' programs.
SWEP provides Victorian people who either have a permanent or long-term disability or are frail aged with subsidised aids, equipment and home and vehicle modifications to enhance their independence and facilitate community participation.
How can SWEP help you?
SWEP provides a subsidy towards the cost of equipment and/or modifications. This is to improve independence in your home, assist in community participation and support families and carers in their role. This is provided through a number of programs, details of which are available below. Reissue equipment will be provided where appropriate.
