Funding for Disability

The Community Living and Participation Grants are managed by National Disability Services WA (NDS WA) and supported by Lotterywest.

Applications are made on behalf of individuals or groups of individuals by either:

  • An unincorporated community group that has a bank account in its name and holds regular meetings; or
  • An incorporated not for profit organisation.

Riverside P&C is able to make such an application and can nominate Riverside Education Support Centre to manage the funds. (An individual cannot make an application.) Speak to the school office for current P&C contact details.

The Community Living and Participation Grants assist West Australian individuals with a permanent disability.

Grants of between $500 and $10,000 are available for equipment, resources, projects and activities that:

  • enable people with disabilities to participate in recreational and social activities; and
  • improve the quality of life for people with disability and their families.

If you have an idea for a Community Living and Participation Grant, we encourage you to first make contact with NDS WA who can provide expertise and advice to assist you to develop your idea.

For further information, please contact the NDS WA Project Manager on telephone 9208 9830 (Monday – Thursday) or by email to grants@nds.org.au

  • RESC Administration Office Upgrade

    Dear Parents, Carers and members of the RESC Community,

    I am pleased to officially announce that our Administration Office upgrade will commence on the 11 September 2017.

    From that date access to the school office and front-of-school Disabled Parking bays will be limited by construction activities and hoarding around the work site. We will work with the builder to try to keep that disruption and non-access time to a minimum. Your patience and understanding during this time will be very much appreciated.
