Group & Centre Based Activities

The Group & Centre-Based Activities service is an NDIS service that supports people with disabilities to participate in group-based activities. This service is designed to help individuals build social connections, develop skills, and engage in meaningful activities.

Group & Centre-Based Activities can include many activities such as art classes, music lessons, gardening, cooking, sports, and many others. These activities are often held in group settings and are led by trained professionals who provide guidance and support.

Accessing the Group & Centre-Based Activities service begins with a consultation with an NDIS planner. The planner will work with the individual to identify their interests and goals and develop a plan with the support they need to participate in group-based activities. The plan may consist of funding for transport, activity fees, and support workers.

Once the plan is in place, the individual can access the service. This may involve attending group activities at a community centre, joining a sports team, or participating in a class or workshop. The support provided through this service can be tailored to the individual’s needs and preferences and adjusted as their goals and needs change.

Participating in group-based activities can significantly impact the quality of life for people with disabilities. It provides opportunities for social interaction, personal growth, and empowerment and can help to reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness. The Group & Centre-Based Activities service is an essential component of the NDIS and can help individuals to achieve their goals and live fulfilling lives.
