Assistive Technology for All (ATFA) is an alliance of organisations from across the ageing and disability sectors. The Alliance was created in response to growing concern about the lack of access to assistive technology for people who are not eligible for NDIS funding support.
Currently older Australians who are over 65 and not eligible for the NDIS have limited access to funding for assistive technologies like wheelchairs, prosthetics, screen reading software and home modification equipment to help them remain safe and independent at home.
Limbs 4 Life is a key ATFA member, advocating for improved access to assistive technology from both state and commonwealth governments. Like all other members of the Alliance we are growing increasingly frustrated with the situation and are fighting for reform which will see equitable access to assistive technology regardless of a person’s age or location.
Please join our ‘Assistive Technology for All’ campaign and help us to advocate for better outcomes for people with disability that sit outside the NDIS. Your voice is powerful and we need your help!
