What Is NDIS Social And Community Participation (CP)?
Be A Part Of The Community
Increased Social and Community Participation services are an NDIS-funded package of disability support services designed to assist people with disabilities who want to lead fulfilling lives and take an active role in their community.
This means participants can use their Assistance with Social and Community Participation funding to improve their ability to participate in recreational, social and community activities in a safe environment. The list of community activities can include:
- Vacation activities such as going to the beach
- Having coffee at their local cafe
- Community activities with a skill-building component
- Attend community classes (art, writing, music etc)
- Participating in a holiday camp or sporting club
- Simply just taking in the sights and sounds in their local area
Leading the way in creating opportunities for people living with disabilities, Sapphire Support can assist participants in meeting their goals and dreams through their NDIS Plan.
