Grants to unlock opportunities for people with disability

October 29, 2020

Boosting people with disability’s participation in economic and community life is the focus of more than $75 million in Federal Government grants announced today.

Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services Gareth Ward said applications are now open for the next two rounds of the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) program, with NSW organisations encouraged to apply.

“Many people with disability face barriers to full participation in social and economic life that many of us take for granted – this program aims to remove those barriers,” Mr Ward said.

“Previous ILC grant rounds have injected millions of dollars into programs promoting inclusion through sports, local clubs, community groups and councils.

“It is important to support the growth of opportunities for community participation for people with disability, particularly during the recovery from the pandemic, and I strongly encourage organisations to apply.”

Almost $36 million is available through the Social and Community Participation grant round, which fosters inclusion in community life through arts, culture, sport and recreational activities.

An additional $40 million is available under the Economic Participation grant round, focusing on improving job readiness and employment related skills and knowledge for people with disability.

NSW organisations have received more than $125 million in ILC grants since the program was established.

They Call me Shuffles

    A diagnosis with Parkinson's changes a lot of things: Motor function, non-motor functions, but maybe even more powerful is the changes in social interactions. I personally don't mind being called "Shuffles" now, I did at first (8 or so years ago I think), I...
