Life saving and life changing projects

Motivation Australia is a not for profit development organisation that strengthens locally led sustainable health, disability, rehabilitation and assistive technology services.

Health and rehabilitation

Access to health, rehabilitation and assistive technology services helps reduce the impact of impairment, removes barriers, and increases the ability of people with disabilities to live happy and healthy lives.

Assistive technology

Assistive technology reduces the impact of impairment and increases the ability of people with disabilities to participate in family and community, and carry out their daily activities.


Everyone has the right to be included and participate in their family and community life as much as they would like to. We advocate for deliberate inclusion to increase access to health services for all.

Change in Motion

Watch Change in Motion, our short-form documentary about the mobility device service in Samoa. An amazing achievement, and some great stories from people who have accessed the service!
