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 2017-2018

As you may be aware, a joint announcement has been made by the Commonwealth and Western Australian governments which will see Western Australia join the nationally-delivered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Please note that this announcement has no impact on the current Information Linkages and Capacity Building 2017-18 Expression of Interest (ILC EOI) DSC0442017 process.

The ILC EOI process will continue as per State Supply Commission and Process Terms and Conditions and Definitions (Request for Expressions of Interest) requirements.

The timeframes highlighted in advertised EOI documentation, including written notification of the outcome of submitted EOIs by January 2018, also remain unchanged.

For technical enquiries related to the ILC EOI process please contact Kate Rowe, Senior Contract Management Officer, at or (08) 9426 9623.

ILC initiatives are funded through open tender grants.

ILC Grants 2016-2017

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
