Intervac inclusion funding

The Intervac program improves access and participation in OSHC and vacation care services for children with specific needs.

Intervac supports services to meet the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act 1992.

It also supports families of children with disabilities to enter or re–enter the workforce, and contributes to their wellbeing.

It helps them manage the competing demands of work, study and family.

How to apply for funding

Intervac funding is provided by the department to approved OSHC services and state-funded vacation care services.

Funding is provided when there is a need for additional educators to include children with additional needs or disabilities.

The Intervac funding presentation (PDF 91KB) summarises the Intervac program and highlights the key paperwork associated with requesting and acquitting funded hours.

For more detailed information and the administrative processes associated with applying for and acquitting the funding refer to the Intervac guidelines (PDF 276KB).

Why this matters

The department has a strong commitment to provide meaningful opportunities and increased access for children with specific needs within inclusive environments where all children have the opportunity to play and interact with a range of people.
