Information, Linkages and Capacity Building

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

Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) is part of the NDIS. It’s about creating connections between people with disability and the communities they live in.

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, and freedom to do activities like going to the beach or the movies.

ILC is how the NDIS aims to help make this a reality.

About ILC

ILC funding is distributed through grants from the National Disability Insurance Agency. These grants aim to:

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

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

For more information, visit the ILC website.

ILC in Victoria

ILC activities will begin in Victoria in 2019.

The Victorian Government currently supports some ILC-type activities (with NDIA funding). These are described below and grouped by ILC outcomes.

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