Our Enable In project works with people with disability who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and people with psychosocial disability to connect with the NDIS and mainstream services.
The project aims to understand the current level of mainstream and NDIS support in order to provide personalised support to people accessing the NDIS, as well as investigating what future supports may be required for hard to reach communities.
The project has Connection Coordinators who will help you find generalised information on how to access the NDIS and other mainstream services.
The people that we are working with currently are aged between 18 and 65 and are in one of the following groups:
- Homeless or at risk of homelessness
- People with psychosocial disability
Peer Navigator Training Program is coming to Dubbo
This training program will give people free information, assistance and support about how to access and use the NDIS. The program is for people with disability aged 18-65 who are homeless or have psychosocial disability.
Join Us – Tuesday 3 September
The training program will be held at The Salvation Army, 110 Gipps Street, Dubbo. The program continues the 1st Tuesdays of the month 11am to 2pm.

Phone: 1800 422 015
We are in the process of organising sessions across other parts of NSW.
We will provide more information on where and when these services can be accessed once they are finalised.
Project Advisory Group (PAG)
We are working alongside individuals, relevant service providers, Enable In Project Advisory Group (PAG) and a number of Peer Support Groups (PSGs) around the state.
The Enable In PAG consists of people who are or have been in the above groups, representatives from organisations working with those groups, PWDA members, Enable In team members, and the UNSW Social Policy and Research Centre.
Peer Support Groups (PSGs)
The aim of a PSG is to share information with peers to enhance networking opportunities. Enable In Connection Coordinators work together with the PSGs to identify, foster and support Peer Support Navigators (PSNs).
