FPDN is working in partnership with Ernest and Young (EY) and Community Service Industry Alliance (CSIA) to deliver the Boosting the Local Care Workforce (BLCW) project.

BLCW is a national project that focusses on addressing workforce planning and development issues across the disability and aged care sectors.

FPDN, through the BLCW project, is working to achieve outcomes for:

  • Culturally competent services and supports for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders people living with disability
  • Opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses in the aged care and disability sector to access information and support to grow their business
  • Creating and promoting job opportunities for our community in the aged care and disability sector

The BLCW project has developed resources to support all service providers to grow their business, transition into the NDIS market and create new employment opportunities.

For more information on BLCW resources and support opportunities click through our Service Provider Toolkit.
