Apply for Funding


While there are several funding sources available to children with neurological conditions, there are many children who have requirements that go beyond the traditional funding criteria and limits. This is where Brainwave can help.

What support is available?

Brainwave funds equipment and aids that assist children with a neurological condition to improve their quality of life. Funding may include:
  • Equipment for home care, such as a standing frame, pressure mattress, or bathing aid
  • Rehabilitation and mobility equipment, including a wheelchair, walking frame, or specialised trike
  • Home and car modifications such as a ramp, door frame widening, chair lift, or car hoist
Children newly diagnosed with a neurological condition can have an ongoing need for therapy once they leave the hospital. Brainwave can offer these children and families assistance through funding of approved therapy programs including:
  • Speech therapy
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Music therapy
  • Physiotherapy
Funding applications are reviewed at the end of each month, and applicants are notified shortly afterward. Each family’s needs are unique, and each case is assessed individually. For further inquiries, please contact Brainwave on 1300 766 819.
