NDIS ILC opportunities

ILC is a key part of the NDIS and includes activities that build the capacity of people with disability to participate in the community, as well as activities that build the capacity of communities to become more inclusive of people with disability.

Under the NDIS, the National Disability Insurance Agency is funding organisations to deliver ILC activities through their ILC grants program. This creaets opportunities for organisations and businesses, who will need to apply for funding to deliver these types of supports into the future.

More information about the ILC grants program and ILC toolkit to assist with your proposal is available on the NDIS website.

The ILC grants program will continue throughout 2019.

Support for organisations and businesses

Community Services Industry Alliance (CSIA), in partnership with National Disability Services (Qld) is providing support to help Queensland organisations get ready to take up ILC opportunities.

To find out more, contact CSIA on cbunt@csialtd.com.au or visit the CSIA website.

A range of practical NDIS business tools are available to support your organisation through the business planning process when considering how your organisation's services and business models can adapt to the new NDIS marketplace.

DCDSS funded organisations

For organisations who may have been funded by the Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors to deliver services such as, information and referral services; interpreter and translation services and other types of programs such as the Parent Connect Initiative, the NDIS means change but it also brings opportunities to deliver services at an individual and community level.

Organisations will need to consider where their services best fit in the new NDIS environment.

  • ILC - organisations apply for ILC funding and put forward their program or service to be considered.
  • Individual supports - services will become supports that participants will purchase through their individual funding packages, and organisations register as an NDIS provider.

Queensland Government is continuing to fund 14 organisations across the state to provide funded advocacy services for people with disability. These services are available until 30 June 2021.
