Community Aids and Equipment Program (CAEP)

Provision of equipment and home modifications to people with long-term disability.

The Community Aids and Equipment Program (CAEP) provides an equitable and accessible scheme for the provision of equipment and home modifications to benefit people with long-term disability living at home.

All CAEP funded equipment and home modifications are provided to enhance the function, independence and safety of the equipment user; and to assist unpaid carers in their caring role.
