Inclusion Ready Workshop: QUT Kelvin Grove
Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and the Inclusion Ready Project invite key stakeholders at QUT and their affiliates to a workshop about the Information Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) grants.
ILC grants deliver activities which help create positive and lasting change for people with disability and their communities. Research and evaluation are important elements of all ILC grants and help drive the capacity for inclusion across the community.
Why is this workshop being run?
Over the next three years, the Australian Government is offering up to $400M to local and national organisations to help them grow their capacity to deliver inclusive projects that directly benefit people with disability. This funding is being delivered through the NDIA's new national Information Linkages and Capacity Building investment strategy: a blueprint for delivery of the ILC grants from 1 July 2019 to 2022.
ILC grants play an important role in the NDIS.
National Disability Services (NDS), the peak body for disability service providers, recognises the gap in understanding about the ILC. NDS is partnering with QUT to deliver a bespoke workshop for tertiary organisations interested in working in partnership with mainstream organisations, councils and disability services to deliver evidence based ILC projects.
What does this workshop cover?
This workshop is specifically designed for tertiary organisations across all faculties and disciplines, Higher Degree Research students, mainstream organisations affiliated with QUT, local council, students with disability, their families and carers to understand:
- The revised ILC strategy – what it is and how it fits under the NDIS
- The role of research and evaluation in the ILC grants
- The ILC opportunity for tertiary institutions
- The grant structure and application process
- What grant decision makers are looking for
Scenarios will focus specifically on successful ILC projects involving Australian universities and the benefits of partnership based applications.
ILC is more than just a grant program – it’s an opportunity to be an agent for change in your local and national community.
This is a free event, with lunch provided.
