The State-wide Equipment Program (SWEP) provides services and systems that support consumers, and the practitioners who work with them, to access assistive technology (AT) items that meet their goals and needs.


Christmas Closure

The State-wide Equipment Program (SWEP) will close over the Christmas period from 5.00pm on Thursday 24th December until 8.30am on Tuesday 29th December 2020.

An emergency repair service will be available during this period by phoning SWEP on 1300 747 937 and selecting the 'press 1' option.  If your query is not urgent, you can leave a message bank by selecting the 'press 2' option and we will call you back when we return.

SWEP will remain open throughout January apart from New Year's Day (1st January 2021) and Australia Day (26th January 2021) public holidays.

We wish you all a safe and happy festive season.

Warmest regards and best wishes, SWEP Leadership team and staff.


CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) Update July 2020


As the COVID-19 situation has changed throughout 2020, 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, 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.
