Audience at conference seen from behind

The Australian Government is inviting applications through an open process for the Disability, Mental Health and Carers Program – Disability and Carer Support – National Disability Conference Initiative. The initiative provides funding of up to $10,000 to conference organisers for disability-related conferences with a national focus planned for the 2018-19 year to:

  • assist people with disability with the costs of attending conferences, (for example, conference fees, accommodation, travel for domestic participants); and/or
  • assist family members or carers providing support to a person with disability attending a conference (for example with costs associated with conference fees, accommodation, travel for domestic participants); and/or
  • facilitate access so that people with disability can participate in conferences (for example, by funding accessible materials, Auslan interpreters, assistive computer devices or software, aids or appliances or other costs of ensuring venue accessibility).
