Applying for Aids and Equipment

How do I apply?

You need to be assessed by an appropriate health professional from your local area (physiotherapist, occupational therapist, or similar) who will help you determine the most suitable aid, equipment or modification needed. This includes an assessment of whether you or your carer can safely use the equipment. Your health professional will complete the online form for the equipment or modification that is needed.

What happens when the assessment is done?

Once the assessment is completed, your healthcare professional will submit the application and supporting documents to SWEP electronically on your behalf.

What happens when the application has been processed?

Once your application has been processed SWEP will contact you to let you know what happens next. Reissued aids and equipment are provided where possible. If reissue equipment or funds are not available immediately the application may need to go on a waiting list.
