    Organisations seeking project funding from the Youth Opportunities program are to involve young people in all aspects of the project (initiating, leading, managing and participating).

    Projects which are genuinely youth-led and youth-driven are those initiated by young people in response to what they have said they need. We are seeking applications which address young people’s identified needs in an innovative way and increase young people’s connections to the community.

    Organisations must speak with young people and involve them in developing the project proposal prior to submitting an application.

    Applications close: 16 July 2018.

    The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is one of the biggest social and economic reforms in Australia since the introduction of Medicare in the 1970's. It replaces a disability system that was unfair and inefficient with a new system that is world-leading, equitable and sustainable. The NDIS has been gradually rolling out across many Local Government Areas and is already providing support to more than 160,000 Australians (Q3 2017/18 data).
