Engage In Manager (Sydney)

Engage In project builds upon the learnings of PWDA’s Enable In Project to connect people with psychosocial disability in institutional settings to NDIS and mainstream supports. These institutional settings include psychiatric hospitals, prisons, and boarding houses.

Engage In utilises assertive outreach strategies to address the policy, procedural, cultural, and other structural barriers that frustrate access by people with psychosocial disability in institutional settings to NDIS and mainstream supports.

Engage In creates collaborative relationships with key stakeholders (people with psychosocial disability, family members, significant others, mental health services, NDIS agencies, housing providers, government departments, etc.).

The Engage In Manager will work with the peer led Project Advisory Group (PAG), PWDA staff and other service delivery partners to develop and coordinate all aspects of the project and to manage it, on an ongoing basis.
