Aboriginal short film project - Expression of Interest for community/family stories and actors
The Aboriginal disability reference group Balit Narrum and the Aborigines Advancement League (AAL) have engaged the Brotherhood of St Laurence (BSL) North East Melbourne Area (NEMA), Aboriginal Participation Team to create culturally safe resources to increase the capacity, knowledge and understanding of disability and how it impacts on the individual, family and community.
This short film project aims to introduce the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) as a scheme that enhances the lives of people with disability, their families and communities. The project includes:
Production of 5 X 5-minute films depicting “real life stories” of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island persons with disability, their families, carers, friends and associated members of the community.
The short films will represent the lived experience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island persons in terms of their diversity of disability, age and gender.
The final film products may be distributed on various digital platforms including: YouTube, BSL’s website and social media (Facebook) and on USB for community engagement purposes.

New Online Grant Application Process
A new online grant application process has been developed to improve the application experience for applicants and streamline data and information capture for the Foundation. You will no longer be required to provide hard copy grant applications and documentation.
For those organisations who received funding in 2018/19, an online Grant Progress Report has also been developed. You will find a link to this report in Part E of the grant application form.
A significant amount of time has been taken to develop and test this online process. Should you experience any problems or have any questions regarding the grant program or your application, please do not hesitate in contacting Gail Rodgers.
