Workforce Impact Collective led by National Disability Services ACT - Finalist for the 2019 Chief Minister's Inclusion Awards
The Workforce Impact Collective led by National Disability Services ACT is a finalist for the Excellence in Innovation, Design and Access award at the 2019 ACT Chief Minister’s Inclusion Awards!
The Workforce Impact Collective (WIC) brought disability community stakeholders together, identifying issues, developing ideas and funding solutions to increase the quantity, quality and sustainability of the ACT disability workforce. WIC worked with organisations to develop project proposals and funded 6 innovative pilot projects.
Pilot projects were encouraged to include people with disability in project reference groups, and to demonstrate that the pilot proposal included consultation with a large section of the disability community including those living with a disability. All 6 pilot projects had input from people with disabilities and/or their families. While the primary focus of WIC has been to build and develop the disability support workforce, WIC has also emphasised ‘building for purpose’ through consultation and continued involvement of people with disability.
