Strengthening ILC: A national strategy towards 2022

Australians with disability are set to benefit from a new approach to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Information, Linkages and Capacity (ILC) Building program.

Minister for Families and Social Services, Paul Fletcher, and Assistant Minister for Social Services, Housing and Disability Services, Sarah Henderson, have announced that opportunities through the new ILC program will be available from early 2019, with more than $398 million of funding available over 2019-20 to 2021-22

The new approach to ILC will be delivered through four complementary programs:

  • Individual Capacity Building Program – delivered through a national network of Disabled Peoples Organisations and Families Organisations (DPOs/FOs);
  • National Information Program – providing accessible, quality and consistent information about disability types and service and support options;
  • Mainstream Capacity Building Program – working to change the way that mainstream services are better connected to NDIS participants, so that people with disability can use these services alongside everyone else; and
  • Economic and Community Participation Program – working to increase the social and economic participation, including employment outcomes, of people with disability.

The Strategy  is available for download in Word and PDF formats
