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.
Is ILC taking one step forward, only to go two steps back? Roland and Elizabeth explore the implications of the NDIA’s recent non-competitive, ‘invite only’ ILC Remote Grants.
The latest funding round for Information, Linkages & Capacity Building (ILC) opened yesterday and the funding available is greater than any previous round.
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.
