Top-Up Fund for Children (TFC)

The Top-up Fund for Children was established by the Victorian Government in May 2012 to assist families and children with the cost of Assistive Technology (AT) items. The fund will cover the full amount of funding required to meet the difference between the maximum aids and equipment subsidy and the total cost of eligible AT items.

TFC is able to pay the remainder of the cost towards:

  • Manual wheelchairs and initial customisations
  • Powered wheelchairs and initial customisation
  • Pressure cushions
  • Walking aids
The Top-up Fund for Children is available for eligible children less than 18 years of age who need a manual or powered wheelchair including initial customisation if needed, pressure cushions and walking aids.

Who is eligible?

Eligible children must:
  • Be under 18 years of age
  • Have an approved A&EP application
  • Be listed on a Health Care Card or hold a Pension Concession Card

Please fill out the TFC Application form and send to SWEP. For more details, please see the TFC FAQ section.
