National Disability Services (NDS) invites you to attend the Bendiro 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 Andrew Gibbs, the session will provide an opportunity for participants to explore project design using designated principles and best practice to assist and support their achievement of successful grant applications.

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.

It is advised that organisation representatives bring along their Mission and Vision statement 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.
