About Project Embark

Embark began as a three-month project in 2019 funded by the NDIA through the NSW Ministry of Health to improve access to the NDIS for people experiencing homelessness and mental illness. Project Embark consulted service providers and directly engaged people experiencing homelessness and mental illness to map the barriers faced by this group in accessing the NDIS.  

The 2019 project focused on information sharing and capacity building for both people experiencing homelessness and mental illness and service providers to improve access to the NDIS. This included developing resources, offering community engagement activities and delivering workshops. Project Embark also sought to discuss solutions to some of the barriers faced in supporting someone experiencing homelessness and mental illness to access the NDIS.

Embark in 2020

In 2020, Embark has been funded by the NSW Ministry of Health to provide direct support to people experiencing homelessness and mental illness to access the NDIS. The support delivered by Embark is guided by our research and the knowledge gained during the 2019 project to assist people through their NDIS journey.

The resources developed by Project Embark can be found on this website and are free to download and use to assist people who are eligible to access the NDIS.
