To access NDIS assistance with social and community participation, individuals living with disabilities should first be NDIS participants by meeting the eligibility criteria. Once approved, participants can discuss their social and community participation goals with their NDIS provider. They can then include these goals in their NDIS plan which outlines the funding and support available for NDIS social and community participation. Participants can use it to access social and community activities as well as join community groups. They can also participate in recreational events, promoting inclusion, connection, and personal growth.
Building Social Skills and Networks
Through NDIS community participation, individuals living with disabilities can actively engage in activities that promote the development of social skills and the expansion of social networks. NDIS community access provides opportunities for participation in group activities and funded programs. These are specifically designed to enhance social interaction and connection. By accessing NDIS funded activities and engaging in group-based programs, participants can build social skills, form meaningful connections, and expand their networks. NDIS group activities help in fostering social inclusion and empowering individuals to participate in their communities actively.
