Hydrotherapy Pools at Specialist Schools Fund

Who can apply:

Hydrotherapy is a valuable treatment for children and young people with disabilities. Schools with hydrotherapy pools can provide students with extra recreational and therapeutical benefits.

The 2023–24 Victorian State Budget allocated $25 million to the Hydrotherapy Pools at Specialist Schools Fund. This is part of a $235 million investment to support students with disability or additional needs in schools. This program will support more students to access the infrastructure they need.

Interested government specialist schools are encouraged to read the guidelines below. This will allow them to assess their eligibility and capability to install a pool on their premises.
