Technical Aid to the Disabled ACT (TADACT) is a not for profit organisation that specialises in creating or modifying equipment for people with a disability of all ages, older people, and supporting their carers.

We are a volunteer-based organisation dedicated to enabling independence for people with disabilities of all ages, older people, and their carers in the ACT and South Eastern NSW through the creative application of technology to meet individual needs.

This will help them to better participate in and contribute to the community.

Although TADACT is a registered provider under the NDIS it will still support those people with disabilities, older people, and their carers who are not eligible for NDIS funding.

People wishing to use the NDIS for funding to obtain aids and equipment should include a line item in their NDIS plan to cover “assistive technology” with an approximate $ range sufficient to cover the purchase of the item(s) eg. $1500 to $2000 for a customised cycle solution. You can seek advice from TADACT about the cost of particular items.

TADACT is also a Registered Support Coordinator under the NDIS.
The NDIA defines Support Coordination as: ‘Assistance to strengthen participants’ abilities to coordinate and implement supports and participate more fully in the community.’ It can include initial assistance with linking participants with the right providers to meet their needs, assistance to source providers, coordinating a range of supports both funded and mainstream and building on informal supports, resolving points of crisis, parenting training and developing participant resilience in their own network and community.’

Our core common services include the:

  • Design and construction of customised equipment otherwise commercially unavailable.
  • Modification of commercially available equipment to suit clients' special needs.
  • Provision of specialised advice to clients and their carers regarding equipment, and referral to other organisations to further assist you.
We also regularly post aids and equipment for sale on Gumtree.
