Applications are open for the Australian Disability and Indigenous Peoples’ Education Fund (ADIPEF) to assist people with disability gain empowerment through access to formal and informal education programs.
Unfortunately for many people with disabilities their early years are more about cure and rehabilitation than stable, well-grounded education. The skills to make and retain careers, relationships and friends are developed while they attend school however continuing disruption of this education impacts greatly on this learning. For many children presently attending school, medical treatment and rehabilitation continues to disrupt their education. Many indigenous people with disabilities experience further disruption to their education due to poverty, isolation, lack of services, family breakdown.
For many people with disabilities from both indigenous and non-indigenous backgrounds, education can go a long way to not only developing their skills but also their self-esteem and the pride of their family, friends and community. This education fund is about helping people complete or undertake courses and programs through providing small grants.
The fund is looking to distribute small six monthly grants of up to $2,500 to assist people with disabilities to continue their learning.
People with disabilities of any age living in Australia may apply for any assistance to help with both formal and informal education.
