What is the Inclusive Community Education Program?
The ICEP is a two year pilot program operated by the Respite Directorate, Family and Community Services, Aging, Disability and Home Care. It is a flexible respite program that aims to give carers a break by providing recreation and leisure courses for adults with a disability. It also aims to give people with a disability an opportunity to build social networks with their peers outside usual service hours.

Who Can Come?
The ICEP pilot is for people with a disability who:
  • Are aged 18-45 years (with some flexibility)
  • Have an unpaid carer e.g. parent (people who are recipients of the Carers Allowance or other benefits are considered to be unpaid carers)
  • Are living in the community. People who currently live in ADHC funded or operated accommodation are not eligible as the focus is to provide respite to an unpaid carer.
  • Live in Ashfield, Burwood, Canada Bay, Canterbury, Leichhardt, Marrickville, Strathfield, Botany Bay, Randwick, Rockdale, Sydney, Waverly or Woollahra LGAs
