How do IDEAS help people with disability, their carers and supporters?

IDEAS stands for Information on Disability, Education and Awareness Services. Our purpose is to enable the frail, aged, people with disabilities, their families, carers, supporters, and service providers to become better informed when making decisions. We aim to improve awareness and understanding of disability and aging issues and resources, including community education, information provision, and training.

We do this by:

Providing Information

We collate high quality and accurate information and house it on our curated website. Information is also disseminated via our eNews and social media channels.

Infoqore

Infoqore will provide people with disability, Providers and other professionals access to accurate, relevant, and timely information allowing them to make informed decisions. Access to the database is provided by subscription through Qore bundles.

Projects

Together with partners we are, and have been involved in many projects in line with our mission:

  • The 2019-2020 PLATFORM Project with partner Eastern Riverina Arts funded under NDIS Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) allowed IDEAS to develop Ezy-Dun.
  • A partnership in 2020-2021 with National Ethnic Disability Alliance (NEDA), saw IDEAS delivering the NDIS Community Connector program in Newcastle, NSW Central Coast, Campbelltown, and Wollongong. This program assisted people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities to access the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The program concluded in June 2021, with the NDIS Local Area Coordinators taking on the role in their regions.
  • IDEAS is in partnership with ARTD Consultants, Information Access Group and First Peoples Disability Network Australia FPDN. The consortium has been selected as one of 28 organisations on the NDIA Participant Engagement Panel. The Panel will assist the NDIA to hear the views of a diverse range of participants, informing policy development and service improvement.
