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!

How do we know where we're going, if we don't know where we are? 🤔

This April we worked with Australia in Fiji through "Australia’s Support to Fiji’s Health Sector Program" in partnership with Ministry of Health & Medical Services - Fiji.

Motivation Australia supported local partners to begin reviewing their current prosthetic and orthotic services. Many different evaluation tools and methods have been used so far - including consultations with local stakeholders.

COVID-19 restrictions have challenged the way the Motivation Australia team have approached consulting stakeholders. Thankfully we were able to bring local project officer, Debbie Williams, on board to safely meet with service users from around the country.

Celebrating a historical event - the Papua New Guinea (PNG) Assistive Devices Forum! The first forum to bring together stakeholders from all over PNG happened seven years ago today 🤯

The energetic participation of all attendees brought out vital ideas that helped shape the National Guidelines on the Provision of Assistive Technology published two years later.

While the way we gather has changed, ensuring everyone can share their insight and guide initiatives that affect them will always be a keystone of Motivation Australia's work 🙌
