Funding Options

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

Under 50 for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders
Under 65 for all others

NDIS provides those with disabilities the opportunity to create individualised plans, and the ability to choose what services, support and activities they’d like to receive. The NDIS  “is the new way of providing individualised support for eligible people with permanent and significant disability, their families and carers”

East Coast Accessibility Experts has become a preferred NDIS provider receiving a Certificate of Verification in May 2015.  For further information visit the National Disability Insurance Scheme site or sign up to our mailing list.

My Aged Care (MAC)

Over 50 for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders
Over 65 for all others

East Coast Accessibility Experts work together with My Aged Care, offering solutions for the aged to remain living independently in their own homes.

While East Coast Accessibility Experts can help with modification solutions and provide advice on how to make your home safe and comfortable, My Aged Care offer access to a broad range of more complex services. These government funded services include meal service, nursing care and transport.

Other funding options:

If you’re ineligible for any government or state funding, you can request a quote and pay for our services through your own arrangements.

Donations, community fundraisers and crowd-funding campaigns can be a great way to fund the home modification for yourself or a loved one. While we don’t provide any specialist advice or service relating to these alternatives, we’re more than happy to have a conversation and help in any way we can.

Payment Plans can also be arranged. Please contact our office for more details.
