Information, Linkages and Capacity Building program

Helping people with disability live an ordinary life in their local community.

People with disability want the same things in life as other people in the community. Things most other people take for granted. They want to live an ordinary life and have:

  • somewhere to live
  • a job
  • a good education
  • the company of family and friends
  • freedom to do activities like going to the beach or the movies

The Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) program is how the NDIS aims to help make this a reality.

About the program

ILC was created to build a person's capacity to live an ordinary life and creates opportunities in the community to do so.

To achieve genuine and meaningful community inclusion, people with disability, government and communities need to work together.

ILC funding is distributed through grants to:

  • share information
  • make connections between people, groups and communities
  • build capacity - that is, help people develop skills and abilities 

For more information, visit the ILC website .

ILC in Victoria

From July 2019, ILC activities begin in Victoria.

We currently support some existing ILC-type activities (with NDIA funding). These are described below in topic groups.

These ILC-type activities focus on innovation, addressing market gaps and helping organisations prepare for the ILC.
