CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) 


As the COVID-19 situation has changed throughout 2020/2021, we have evolved our service to facilitate two thirds of our workforce predominately working from home.   We are confident in our current modelling which is unlikely to change in the foreseeable future. 

Through careful planning and up-grading of our IT systems, our team is now able to meet all expected service targets, ensuring ongoing continuity of our services to support our consumers. 

We thank you for your support and patience throughout 2020/2021, as our service model has evolved.

How can SWEP help you?

The State-wide Equipment Program (SWEP) provides a subsidy towards the cost of AT items and/or modifications. This is to assist consumers to improve independence in their home, assist in community participation and support families and carers in their role. This is provided through a number of programs including reissue AT items, which may be new or as new condition, and will be provided where appropriate.

The SWEP is committed to facilitating streamlined, appropriate, efficient and high-quality delivery of assistive technology (AT) by suitably qualified and skilled Assistive Technology Practitioners (AT Practitioners). This supports the needs, goals and aspirations of eligible consumers in line with the guidelines of agencies/ funding bodies who engage SWEP to support their delivery of AT solutions.

The SWEP has developed systems which can be used by AT Practitioners and funding bodies to achieve these aims. These systems work together to address the range of complexity that need to be addressed for effective AT solutions.
