Benalla Grant Designs Workshop
NDS invites you to attend the Benalla Grant Designs Workshop. This workshop aims to help disability service providers, people with disability, carers, and other stakeholders to learn to design projects in a way that will lead to strong disability workforce innovation and development proposals that meet the requirements of funders and the needs of current and future grant rounds.
Facilitated by Workforce Connector Clare Malcolm and Disability Workforce Innovation Project Lead Dianne Hardy, the session will provide an opportunity for participants to explore project design using designated principles and best practice to support their achievement of successful grant applications.
There will be a number of grants available for disability workforce innovation in 2019 and 2020. This workshop is an opportunity to gain insight and practical support into the process for designing a quality grant application.
The workshop will include:
- Knowledge and skills to articulate a project proposal using a structured design process and existing resources
- Increased awareness and potentially, inspiration from recent disability workforce innovations and previous projects that have applied or tested new workforce practices
- Understanding how to use the provided resources to address grant application criteria
- Development of some ideas for a grant proposal to take back to their organisation for validation and refinement
Organisation representatives should bring their Mission and Vision statements and a laptop (if possible) to get the most out of the workshop.
The session will provide:
Grant Designs workbook, Person-centred, Outcome Focussed Design (POPD) guide and other useful references.
This venue is wheelchair accessible. Please contact the organiser directly with any additional accessibility requirements.
