Supply and Financing
At Help Tech, we believe that, for people with a physical impairment, technical aids are a vital contribution to live a fulfilled and self determined life.
Each country has its own funding system. The support for technical aids you are entitled to is often dependent on your occupational or personal situation. The department or organization you can apply for financial support depends on whether you will need an aid for private use, in school and university or at the workplace. In many countries the department of labor is responsible for the financial support for work place equipment.
At local organizations for the blind and visually impaired you will find expert consultants who can help you with your application. Always make sure that you have applied for support before you order equipment.
Many countries have their own national assistive technology information projects. The aim of those projects is to gather information of interest to people with disabilities and support them with advice. Many of those international resources can be found at AbleData.
