Guide to Planning Bathrooms and Kitchens (2015 Edition)

August 19, 2015

The WAIT is over!
ILC NSW has revised this popular guide, 2015 edition is available for purchase.

Bathrooms and kitchens require special attention in the planning phase. Once they are built, they are expensive to alter or modify. This Guide provides advice on planning bathrooms and kitchens for people with specific needs.

The 2015 edition presents an update reviewing circulation and access requirements taking into consideration new sizes of wheelchairs, walkers and other mobility aids. The revised edition also:
- includes additional information based on carers needs to facilitate access to and within the bathroom;
- provides a general overview of the latest innovative assistive technology available for home modifications and retrofits.

Everyone Connects Australia - Project Updates (Jan 2015)

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!
