NDIS Social And Community Participation

Be Part Of Your Community

Humans are social creatures and thrive on interaction and communication. Despite this, people living with disabilities often have trouble getting out, socialising and participating in the activities they enjoy. This leads to a growing sense of loneliness and social isolation.

The importance and benefits of community participation in everyday life have been recognised by the Australian government and is a funded category in your NDIS plan.

This makes it a great option for people living with disabilities who are looking to take part in the community, make friends, participate in group activities as well as support economic and social participation.

At Sapphire Support, you have more ways to meet new people, try new things, make memories and, most importantly, have fun! All you need to do is let us know what you want and we will make it happen.

Social & Community Participation FAQ’S

What Is Social and Community Participation (CP)?

Social and Community Participation, sometimes referred to as CP, is the process of engaging in group or individual activities that enables a particpant to get out into the community.

CP can encompass things such as going to a cafe, spending time at the beach, going to the movies or other activities that would enhance their daily living or help build skills and independence.

Is Social and Community Participation Funded Under The NDIS?

Yes. The NDIS refers to CP as a Support Category 9 – Capacity Building Support, and may fund it in your NDIS plan. Funding can either be applied to the costs of getting to and from a social event, including the cost of a support worker to assist you, as well as costs for the activities themselves, such as tuition fees, art classes, sports coaching and similar activities that build skills and independence.

However, not all costs are covered in your NDIS plan (for example, ticket prices to enter a venue). Call us on 1300 881 884 or click here to learn more about NDIS supports.

What Are Some Examples Of Social and Community Participation?

Activities that may be funded for social and community participation can be broadly categorised to include, art and craft classes, sporting and recreational activities, camping and vacation activities, skill building programs, social outings (beach, library, cafe, shopping etc), volunteering and even connecting with other people in you favourite fan club.

The underlying criteria from the NDIS is that the activity must be “reasonable and necessary” to be included in your plan. Call us on 1300 881 884 to find out more.

In general, costs are related back to your disability and the goals in your NDIS Plan. If it’s not deemed “reasonable and necessary” then it can not be funded
