How do I apply for equipment (assistive technology)?

The Ministry of Health provides equipment (assistive technology) for people who have a physical, intellectual, sensory (vision or hearing) and/or age-related disability.

To find out if you're eligible for government funded equipment, you'll need to have an assessment with a specialist equipment assessor.

To get an assessment organised, contact Enable New Zealand who will put you in touch with an assessor in your area.
