If you are volunteering in the disability sector or would like to start engaging with people with disabilities as part of your AVID assignment, then an AVID Disability Initiative Grant (DIG) could help. The fourth round of DIGs are now open for application.
Past successful initiatives have included staff training on disability delivered by local people with disabilities, introduction of assistive technologies and publishing training and advocacy materials. You can read more about these initiatives here.
Webinars will be held to provide additional information and discuss the DIGs with potential applicants on Tuesday 16 May 11:00am – 12:00pm ACDT and Thursday 18 May 3:00pm – 4:00pm ACDT. Register for a webinar here.
Applications for the Disability Initiative Grants are open 5 – 26 May.
***Applications extended until 11:59pm AEST 28 May 2017***
