Disability, Mental Health & Carers: National Disability Conference Initiative

Disability, Mental Health & Carers: National Disability Conference Initiative

The objective of this Australian Government grant opportunity is to provide grants to conference organisers to help people with disability participate in nationally-focused, disability-related, conferences held in Australia. Grants will support eligible conference organisers to provide accessibility measures that will maximise the inclusion and participation of people with disability at their conference.

The intended outcomes of this grant opportunity that are expected to be achieved by funding conference organisers are:

  • people with disability are provided with greater opportunities to participate in all areas of Australian life by assisting them and their carers with the costs of attending disability related conferences that might otherwise be inaccessible to them
  • greater participation and inclusion of people with disability at nationally-focused, disability-related conferences held in Australia

To be eligible you must be:

  • the conference organiser
