The State-wide Equipment Program (SWEP) is a sub-division of Ballarat Health Services which oversees 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 Assistive Technology (AT) items 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 AT items 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 including reissue AT items, which may be new or as new condition, and will be provided where appropriate.
