Everyone Connects Australia - Project Updates

January 23, 2015

The partnership with the Telstra Foundation in the 2014 pilot project, brought the ILC Everyone Connects Team to run workshops in metro, regional and rural NSW. The overwhelmingly positive responses from participants, demonstrated the need for young people with communication disabilities have to experiment and learn. Workshop attendants were inspired to connect to the digital world!
The project is expanding nationally this year, aptly called
Everyone Connects Australia (ECA). The ECA Team is developing more resources for public working and/or living with people with complex communication needs.
Looking forward to a Everyone Connects Australia!
Rebecca Chedid, Everyone Connects Australia Project Manager, ILC NSW
