Inclusion Ready Workshop: Queensland AIDS Council (QuAC), Queensland AIDS Council (QuAC), Monday, 02. September 2019

Queensland AIDS Council (QuAC) and the Inclusion Ready Project invite key stakeholders 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. Organisations and members of the LGBTIQA+ community are important stakeholders and beneficiaries of ILC grants.

 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 National Disability Insurance Agency’s (NDIA) new national Information Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) investment strategy: a blueprint for delivery of the ILC grants from 1 July 2019 to 2022.
ILC grants play an important role in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
National Disability Services (NDS), the peak body for disability service providers, recognises the gap in understanding about the ILC. The bespoke workshop is for LGBTI organisations and community members who have a disability, interested in working in partnership with mainstream organisations, councils and disability services to deliver evidence based ILC projects.
What does the Workshop cover?

This workshop is specifically designed for LGBTI organisations, mainstream organisations and members of the LGBTI community 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 grant structure and application process
what grant decision makers are looking for
the benefits of inclusion and inclusive practices, services and projects

Scenarios will focus specifically on successful ILC projects involving the LGBTI community 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.
