Mobility scooters can be considered assistive equipment and may be funded under this part of your NDIS plan.

It is important to note that this funding may need to cover all the costs associated with providing the mobility scooter.
This includes:

  1. The cost of your mobility scooter.
  2. The cost of something to store your mobility scooter within like a shed or mini garage if you don’t have a secure and convenient place already.
  3. The cost of preparing and installing the mobility scooter storage.

There are a few steps you can take to see how to get a mobility scooter for free in Australia.

  • Ensure that you meet the NDIS eligibility criteria, which includes having disability that affects your mobility and ability to perform daily activities independently.
  • Demonstrate that a mobility scooter is a reasonable and necessary support for your specific needs.
  • Discuss your need for a mobility scooter with your case manager and then undergo an assistive technology assessment with your occupational therapist or other qualified professional.
  • You, your case manager, or OT can research and obtain quotes from suppliers for the specific mobility scooter that suits your needs.

Your case manager can then work with your NDIS Local Area Coordinator (LAC) or Support Coordinator to include the mobility scooter and related costs in your NDIS plan.

If approved, the NDIS will fund the purchase of the mobility scooter as part of your plan budget.
