The NSW Government agency icare lifetime care administers the Lifetime Care and Support Scheme (the Scheme), which provides lifelong treatment, rehabilitation and attendant care for people severely injured in a motor vehicle accident in NSW, regardless of fault. As part of its role, icare lifetime care funded the Community Participation Grants (CPG), which supported projects offering innovative solutions to increase community involvement of Scheme participants and other people with disability.
icare lifetime care commissioned the Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC) at UNSW Sydney to evaluate the outcomes of the CPG. The evaluation ran from November 2016 until February 2018 and used mixed data collection methods, including a literature review, analysis of project reports, survey of funding recipients and case studies. This is the final evaluation report, which presents an analysis of the collected data according to the evaluation questions.
