Funding for the project is though the ILC grant ( Information, linkages and capacity building) from the NDIA ( National Disability Insurance Agency).

The project will run from July 2018 – June 2020.

Parents who have a disability and have a lived experience of having a child placed in care permanently will provide input and direction throughout the project.

  • Ensure resources will be accessible to parents with a range of cognitive abilities and cultural backgrounds.
