How to Encourage Community Participation in Local Events and Activities

Active community participation helps people with disabilities to enhance their life skills and boost their morale. Various activities and events meant for community participation fosters social relationships and inclusiveness, and help with confidence-building. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support for social and recreational activities which helps with the overall well-being and skill development of their participants. Eligible people with disabilities can access Assistance with Social and Community Participation under NDIS Core Supports budget.

Social activities and community participation are important in any individual’s life. But lack of accessibility and necessary support often prevents people with disabilities from taking an interest in community participation. So, to encourage their participation in local events and activities, service providers can make them accessible and inclusive by collaborating with the organizers, providing transportation and hiring competent disability support staff. Assistance with Social and Community Participation is the primary NDIS support through which participants can address their disability support needs while engaging in community participation. Under this support, a trained NDIS support worker will assist and accompany the participants to help them participate in the activities. Increased social and community participation is another NDIS-funded support under the Capacity Building budget which helps the participant develop the skills required to access their communities.
