The Australian Federation of Disability Organisations (AFDO) is the peak organization in the disability sector representing people with lived experience of disability. AFDO and its member organisations are run by and for people with lived experience of disability. We work to develop a community where people with disability can participate in all aspects of social, economic, political and cultural life. This includes genuine participation in mainstream community life, the development of respectful and valued relationships, social and economic participation, and the opportunity to contribute as valued citizens.

AFDO is currently looking to establish a register of consultants to assist AFDO and its 17 full Members in pursing sustainability initiatives.

As a consultant, you will be expected to be able to advise on sustainability opportunities as they arise including:

  • Reviewing funding applications as developed by a Member,
  • Advising on strategy such as how to respond to opportunities for funding and grants, and
  • Planning for sustainability of the Member.

For clarity, the Consultant will not write or draft the funding and grant applications but assist by reviewing the applications and providing appropriate advice confidentially directly with the Member concerned.

Closing date: Monday 15 January 2019 by 5pm.
