10.1 The Principles for the Provision of Alterations, Modifications, Aids & Appliances

The intention behind providing aids and appliances, modifications to vehicles and modifications/alterations to a person’s residence, workplace or educational setting is to enable a person to:

  • be as independent as possible;

  • effectively manage the impact of their accepted conditions; and

  • improve their quality of life.

    This chapter explains how requests for alterations, modifications, aids and appliances are managed and processed.
