The Victorian State-wide equipment program (SWEP) provides people with a permanent or long-term disability with subsidised aids and equipment to enhance independence in their home, facilitate community participation and support families and carers in their role.
The key principles underpinning the SWEP are to improve outcomes for individuals and aim to achieve a customer focused service through:
Streamlined and timely access to an integrated and coordinated service delivery system.
Transparent processing, prioritisation and equitable access.
Efficient and cost effective use of resources.
The objectives of the Victorian State-wide equipment program (SWEP) are to provide:
Subsidised aids and equipment that support goals and plans of an individual at key life stages.
Streamlined, single point of access for individuals irrespective of their place of residence.
A cost-effective aids and equipment program which maximises assistance to as many individuals as possible.
