The Enable In project was funded by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) under the Information, Linkages, and Capacity Building grant scheme for two years (June 2018 - June 2020), and was delivered by People with Disability Australia (PWDA). The project’s objective was to increase awareness and capacity of people with disability in hard to reach settings and the mainstream and specialist services that support them, to connect to, access and know about the NDIS and other mainstream support. Enable In delivered capacity building and support to people with disability and staff, and training to individuals and services in several locations in metro Sydney and regional NSW.
PWDA and the Enable In team commissioned the Social Policy Research Centre to undertake an action research project together. The aim of the research was to understand the impact Enable In had on people and services, what worked well, and to influence good practice for services working with people with disability in hard to reach settings. The focus of Enable In was on people who were homeless or at risk of homelessness, people with psychosocial disability and people living in institutions.
