Extension of closing date: Queensland Disability Advocacy Program

Organisations who deliver advocacy support to people with disability are invited to apply for funding under the Queensland Disability Advocacy Program.

Disability advocacy supports people with disability to safeguard their rights, experience equality and overcome barriers that can affect their ability to access services and participate in the community.

Grants are available for organisations to deliver:

  • the first-ever centralised Queensland Disability Advocacy Hub, which will have an important leadership role for advocacy statewide, including establishing the Queensland Disability Advocacy Network and identifying and escalating systemic issues
  • specialist services providing individual advocacy support for First Nations people with disability; people with disability from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds; and children and young people with disability aged up to 18 years
  • regional individual advocacy support to people with disability throughout Queensland.

The closing date for the grants round has been extended from 2 August 2021 to 16 August 2021. Organisations can apply for a grant until 16 August 2021. 

For successful organisations, the funding will start from 1 January 2022 and end on 30 June 2023. For more information, including how to apply for Queensland Disability Advocacy Program funding and funding guidelines, visit the funding page.
