Grants: Information, Linkages and Capacity Building program encouraging inclusion
The Australian Government is inviting organisations via an open competitive grant process to apply to deliver services under the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building Program’s Building Employer Confidence and Inclusion in Disability Grant.
In 2018, the unemployment rate for people with disability was 10.3%, more than double the unemployment rate of people without disability (4.6%). It is recognised that people with disability can face many, and sometimes overlapping, barriers to employment, which prevent their full social and economic participation in Australian society. People with disability should have the same opportunities to share the benefits of employment as people without disability. To support people with disability to gain employment and improve their overall wellbeing, the aim of this grant opportunity is to:
- build the confidence and ability of employers to hire, support and retain employees with disability
- create inclusive workplaces by breaking down attitudinal barriers about people with disability
Applications close Wednesday, 23 February at 2:00pm AEDT. Find out more or apply.
