Abstract

With vehicle modifications (VMs), it is possible for many people with acquired disability to return to driving as part of their rehabilitation goals. VMs can range from simple and relatively inexpensive, to highly complex and costly. Though a number of schemes have funded VMs, it is envisaged that NDIS will become a major future funder of VMs for people with disability. Therefore, it is important for funders and other key stakeholders to understand the personal, community and social impact of VMs to justify such investment. We present our recent findings from conducting a social return on investment analysis of VMs.
