This fact sheet explains how Information, Linkages and Capacity (ILC) will provide you with information, training and support to help you access mainstream services and get ready for the NDIS.

ILC will ensure people with disability can access mainstream services by providing information, training and support.

What is Information, Linkages and Capacity building (ILC)?

For many people with disability, support starts with having easier access to information. This means knowing where to find out about supports and how to access supports already available in the community. ILC refers to the supports and services to help you:

  • find supports available in your local community.
  • join in local community activities such as study, sports, socialising or other interests through Local Area Coordinators (LAC)
  • build individual capacity through services like diagnosis advice, peer support and skills development
  • access information, training and support for mainstream and community services in your area.

This will be achieved by coordinating and promoting links between the NDIS and services within local communities.

Who can access and benefit from ILC?

All people with disability, their families and carers can access ILC supports. This includes people who may not need an individual support package under the NDIS.

Where can I find more information about ILC?

More information about ILC is available on the national NDIS website.
