Life saving and life changing projects

Motivation Australia is a not for profit, disability and development organisation that enables people to stay healthy and access rehabilitation and assistive technology from local services through trained personnel.

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.

Inclusion

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!

Many thanks to our partners at OAPL for their valued donation of prosthetic and orthotic components to the National Orthotics and Prosthetics Service (NOPS) in Papua New Guinea!

COVID-19 is having a terrible impact on Papua New Guinea at the moment. However, as an essential service, NOPS must still provide for their clients. These donations from OAPL will assist them to do just that!

Shipping costs have been increasing throughout the past year due to decreased air freight availability. Despite the cost, a shipment like this is still hugely important in enabling our partners overseas to deliver services.

The first ever global guide for priority assistive products has been published by the World Health Organization!

The Assistive Products Specifications (APS) describes minimum quality requirements for products to meet the needs of the people they assist. This should lead to greater quality, affordable products being manufactured and accessed by people around the world.

Motivation Australia participated in the drafting and design of this publication.
