Our Voices, Our Lives, Our Way Project
This project is a joint initiative between LGBTIQ+ Health Australia (LHA) and the National Ethnic Disability Alliance (NEDA) which is funded through the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) Grant. Guided by the principles of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and the social model of disability, the project aims to build the individual and collective capacity of LGBTIQ people with disability (PWD) in a dynamic and innovative way to strengthen existing knowledge and skills. The project will work within a framework of communities of practice and co-design, where sector experts and people with intersectional experience of disability and LGBTIQ identities and histories are engaged in the design process of the creation of a training, peer support and mentoring program that will link LGBTIQ PWD across Australia and increase social connection, self-advocacy, volunteering and community engagement.
The EmployableQ Disability Employment Inclusion Toolkit
Launched in 2020, the EmployableQ Toolkit includes templates and resources for employers within the LGBTI+ sector to promote the hiring of LGBTI+ people with disability.
LGBTIQ+ Health Australia engaged in an NDIS funded project called EmployableQ. LGBTIQ+ Health Australia undertook the project funded through NDIS via the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) Economic Community Participation Disability Grant.
Hannah, our project officer heading up Employable Q, caught up with Arion from Joy 94.9 recently to talk all things employment and disability.
