Aids and equipment

Page last updated: 28 July 2017

States and territories have agreed that aids and equipment can be accessed through their programs.

Clients receiving Individual Support Packages (ISP) may use ISP funding to lease, purchase (or part purchase) aids or equipment if:

  • they are needed urgently
  • the purchase of aids and equipment is already included in their Service Agreement prior to transition to the CoS Programme
  • a State scheme does not supply the required aid or equipment
  • a State scheme does not fully fund the purchase of the required aid or equipment.¬†

Any purchase or lease of aids and equipment must be added to the client's approved ISP Service Agreement, and be in accordance with the CoS Programme Manual.
