With a career in disability that spans 3 decades, Roland Naufal is one of Australia’s most knowledgeable disability professionals. He was winner of the 2002 Harvard Club Disability Fellowship and from 2012 to 2014 consulted on NDIS design for the National Disability & Carer Alliance.
Roland has held leadership roles in some of Australia’s most successful disability organisations, including CEO Villa Maria, General Manager Yooralla, State Manager Vision Australia and CEO Association for Children with a Disability. He worked extensively on disability deinstitutionalisation and lectured on the politics and history of disability. Roland has degrees in Economics and Social Work and an MBA from Melbourne Business School.
DSC has been closely following and contributing to the ILC program since its design. Below are some of our fabulous resources to get you in the ILC mood.
DSC is getting lots of calls from organisations confused about how the ILC program will operate. Sadly, once you understand the fundamentals of ILC and LAC, confusion is replaced with serious concern. Roland outlines the major failings of the ILC program design - and how a failure to address these might just kneecap the NDIS.
In the ILC Program Guidelines released last week, the NDIA confirmed that the upcoming funding round for ILC is not just about the ACT. In addition to Jurisdictional based grants, around $15 million in "National Readiness Grants" will be up for tender.
The NDIA have just released the new version of the Information, Linkages And Capacity Building (ILC) Commissioning Framework, outlining the long awaited details on what, who, how and when ILC will be funded.
Today the NDIA released tenders for Local Area Coordination (LAC) and Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) Partners in 16 roll out regions across Victoria, Queensland, South Australia & ACT.
The NDIA has just announced the latest development in its roll out of the ILC and LAC. We have some serious concerns about the development of these programs and how they threaten the credibility of the NDIS.
Many believe that the NDIS is a threat to small, locally based organisations. Professor Shelley Mallet gives an overview of two approaches that support local collaboration and can also play a key role in the success of the ILC program.
The first outsourced LAC’s in Victoria will be tendered out before Christmas. In a big contract and an even bigger policy development, one LAC provider will be selected for each of the three Victorian areas.
We believe collective impact has enormous potential to support ILC projects. For those of you who want to learn more about collective impact, here are some websites with fabulous resources.
This booklet is a great description of the conceptual framework presented by VALID CEO, Kevin Stone at our recent Information, Linkages & Capacity Building (ILC) workshops. It outlines VALID's Pathways to Empowerment framework, looking at the keys to success for system, individual, family and self advocacy.
As the plans for the national roll out of the NDIS were being finalized, there have also been big changes in how the NDIA will look, including the outsourcing of 7000 jobs and possible co-location with Centrelink.
