“A truly innovative evidence-based literacy program”

This award recognises the innovative, collaborative and inclusive model the program team has adopted to building capacity within individuals with intellectual disability, and their communities.  The evidence-based approach to reducing disadvantage and building sustainable models for ongoing impact was celebrated and commended.

2014 was a big year for Latch-On, having also received the prestigious UQ Partners in Research Excellence Award this year. The program was also featured in UQ’s signature research ‘Discovery at UQ’ publication and on UQ’s Research Excellence Plus website. Latch-On was also shortlisted for the Irish National Adult Learning Organisation (AONTAS) awards two years running.
