NDIS Provider in MelbourneCommunity Participation
You want to feel good and you want to feel that you belong, right!?
Getting out and about could be a funded support category in your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Plan.
The NDIS offers you the support to meet your goals relating to participating in the community.
Activities may be individual or in a group setting.
Community participation and inclusion for people with a disability will have important benefits
- It can lead to improved wellbeing outcomes for people with a disability and their carers (in relation to health, employment, education, income and life satisfaction outcomes).
- It can lessen longer-term care and support costs for people with a disability and it may prevent people who have modest disability care and support needs from needing more costly levels of care and support.
- Support for people with a disability is also likely to have economic benefits, increasing participation in the workforce.
- It creates better networks among people and breaks down stereotypes. It can promote economic and social participation.
The NDIS funding for community participation covers things like joining a social group, visiting your library, going for walks in the park, watching a movie, attending an event or visiting an exhibition. Coaching to develop yourself and/or your skills, or joining a course, for example.
So, if you need support for recreational events, social activities, shopping, watch a movie at the cinema, meet and greet friends, play sport, or participate in confidence and social skill-boosting events, our elves are ready to support you to make many things possible for you!
