Enable In project
Our Enable Inproject 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 help find information on how to access the NDIS and other mainstream services.
The people 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
Dubbo information sessions
The information sessions will offer free information, resources and networking support about how to access and use the NDIS. Local people with any disability aged 18-64 can attend these sessions. Enable In Connection Coordinator will be joined by NDIA Local Area Coordinator (LAC).
For upcoming dates, time and venues please contact Linda or Tamanna.
