CSIA has a strong focus on Industry development to ensure community services are able to grow and be sustainable.
Drawing on Industry experts, we deliver a range of forums and professional development events aligned with our vision for the future.
We are also delivering key projects with support from Queensland Government partners. These include:
Through this project we are developing and designing an excellence framework and supporting tools to assist Child and Family Support services to strengthen their approach to being Child Safe Organisations.
The framework and tools have been developed and tested in collaboration with Industry partners. These, along with the findings, will be used in an implementation plan with key recommendations for achieving excellence in keeping children safe.
Through a partnership with QFCC, CSIA developed a Business Maturity Scorecard (the Scorecard) for Industry that enables them to self-assess their organisation across a range of business capability indicators. Work is underway to develop the model into an online interactive tool to make it more accessible.
The Scorecard and supporting tools will be developed and tested, including online applications, with Industry partners, prior to implementation in May 2019.
Inclusion Ready supports organisations to understand the scope, impact, opportunities and requirements for delivering Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) services as part of the NDIS.
This program is delivered in partnership with National Disability Services, Queensland.
The key areas of focus are:
Inclusion Ready’s first phase was successful and reached more than 600 organisations to provide information, Industry tools, professional development and targeted projects.
The second phase will build on the project’s achievements and support more Queensland organisations to be ready to deliver inclusion projects and apply for ILC funding.
This phase of the work has been extended to provide support for people with disabilities and their families to participate in thriving communities.
This effort will be further supported by:
