Innovative Community Participation

The Innovative Community Participation service is an NDIS service designed to support participants in achieving their goals and aspirations by providing innovative and creative ways to participate in the community. This service aims to provide individuals with the tools and support they need to develop their skills, knowledge, and independence in a fun and engaging way.

Innovative Community Participation can include many activities, such as art classes, music therapy, cooking classes, sports, etc. These activities are designed to be creative and engaging and can help participants to build social connections, develop new skills, and engage in meaningful activities.

Accessing the Innovative Community Participation service begins with a consultation with an NDIS planner. The planner will work with the individual to identify their goals and aspirations and develop a plan that supports them to participate in innovative community-based activities. The plan may include funding for activity fees, equipment, 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 innovative community-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 Innovative Community Participation service is an essential component of the NDIS and can help individuals to achieve their goals and live fulfilling lives.
