It wasn't a part of the trial period, but it will begin operating soon. Today the NDIS released the ILC Toolkit, which is a resource designed to help organisations get involved with ILC. The Toolkit follows the release of several new ILC resources recently, including the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) – Commissioning Framework and more supporting information.

A monitor with a hand holding an 'i', commonly used an a symbol for 'information', and 'ndis'.The NDIS has today released a document called ‘Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) – Commissioning Framework’. This talks about how the NDIS can help people with disability and their families, even if they are not NDIS participants. This is about making life better for all people with disability and their families, in lots of different ways. People used to call ILC 'Tier 2'.
