A total of $5.9 million (GST exclusive) will be made available through an open grants round for Queensland based organisations to deliver disability advocacy services from 1 January 2022 to June 2023.

Disability advocacy services provide supports to people with disability to safeguard their rights, experience equality and overcome barriers that can affect their ability to access services and participate in the community.

Queensland Disability Advocacy Program grants are available for organisations to deliver:

  • the first-ever centralised Queensland Disability Advocacy Hub, which will have an important leadership role for advocacy state-wide, including establishing the Queensland Disability Advocacy Network and identifying and escalating systemic issues
  • specialist services providing individual advocacy support for First Nations people with disability; people with disability from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds; and children and young people with disability aged up to 18 years
  • regional individual advocacy support to people with disability across the state on an individual basis.

The Queensland Disability Advocacy Program grants round is now open.

For successful organisations, the funding will start from 1 January 2022 and end on 30 June 2023.

An industry briefing video will be available online shortly after release of the grants round. The briefing video will be available on this site up to the closing date.
