First round of disability funding ends soon
The grants are worth up to $5000, and aim to help people with disabilities build their confidence or to communicate within their community.
Minister for Disability Services John Ajaka said projects could include going to a public speaking course to increase confidence or creating a support group to share information about moving out of home.
“This initiative is giving people real opportunities to experiment and trial new ways of doing things, and a chance for them to share their learning or experience with others,” he said.
The grants are part of the government’s $5 million My Choice Matters initiative, which the NSW Council for Intellectual Disability is administering.
After 7 April the initiative will offer three more grant rounds this year.
