Community participation is an important aspect of any individual’s life which provides the opportunity for personal growth, building social connections and improving health and mental well-being. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plays an important role in encouraging the community participation of people with disabilities by providing them with the necessary assistance to partake in various community activities. This helps to promote inclusive and equitable opportunities for people with disabilities to become active members of our society.
Assistance with Social and Community Participation is the NDIS-funded support which facilitates the community involvement of the participants by providing them with the required assistance in attending the activities of their choice. Through this NDIS support, participants can access the services of competent support workers who will attend to the disability-related needs of the participants such as personal care, transportation or any other essential help needed to ensure accessibility to various community activities. This will enable the participants to engage in their favourite hobbies, attend skill-development activities, go on leisure outings, watch movies at the theatre, go to a concert or participate in a wide variety of events that aligns with their NDIS goals. Participants can access Assistance with Social and Community Participation with the help of their Core Supports budget if it is found to be ‘reasonable and necessary’ according to their goals.
