Information, Linkages and Capacity Building

Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) is an important part of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

ILC is the tier of the NDIS that supports communities and mainstream services to build their capacity to include, support and involve people with disability by developing resources and providing connections to services and supports in the community.  

You do not have to be eligible for the NDIS in order to access ILC activities and resources.

ILC Grants 2016-17

ILC initiatives are funded through open tender grants.

The 2016-17 WA ILC priority areas were identified from NDIS in WA trial area learnings and experiences, as well as feedback from Ministerial Advisory Council on Disability community and sector engagement events. The priorities comprised:

  • information and advice on the NDIS in WA
  • preparation for the formal NDIS in WA planning process
  • self-management.

A list of the successful ILC Grant Recipients for 2016-17 is available on the Tenders WA website.

The ILC grant activities calendar lists information sessions, workshops and one-to-one sessions available to people with disability, as well as their families and carers, in locations across WA.  

ILC Grants 2017-18

The 2017-18 ILC priority areas for grant funding in WA are yet to be determined. We anticipate that a grant round will be advertised toward the end of 2017.
