A better start for children with low vision
Better Start Funding Support.
‘Better Start for Children with Disability’ is a funding initiative of the Australian Federal Government. The program supports children from the age of birth to seven years, who have been diagnosed with a disability and need early intervention services from expert healthcare professionals.
Our Children’s Mobility Service is an approved provider under the Better Start initiative. Our specialist children’s team offer a range of practical skills to lay the foundation for ongoing independence through life.
Funding options for seniors
My Aged Care.
The Australian Government provides funding for services to help senior Australians maintain independence, through My Aged Care. My Aged Care can cover the costs associated with supports to keep you living at home the way you want to, even as you experience a change or loss of vision.
We offer a number of government-subsidised programs you can access through My Aged Care. These include support services, personal care, nursing, care coordination and case management, allied health and other clinical services.
