Social and recreation activities can include things like:

N

visiting your friends and family

N

active hobbies, such as bike riding, skiing or kayaking

N

playing sport, such as tennis, surfing or basketball

N

going out, for instance to the movies or a concert

N

going places for fun, such as shopping or visiting a museum

N

relaxing, like meditation or yoga

N

learning new skills, like dance, art classes or quilting

In your NDIS plan, this is a core support.

Please note you will need to pay for the costs of the activity that everyone would pay for such as membership or entrance costs. The NDIS would fund the support you need (e.g. support worker) to take part in the activity because of your disability.

Group and Centre Activities

Group/Centre activities is designed to assist and encourage you to join the community, social and recreational activities with a group to foster an inclusive and stimulating environment in which you are free to meet new people, make new friends, participate in activities and learn new skills, all while having fun.

Innovative Community Participation

Our Innovative Community Participation Program is designed to support you to build your skills and develop independence in accessing the community. You tell us what your interests and hobbies are – we help you access them and support you to participate in them. This could include short courses to develop skills e.g. cooking classes, computer learning, art classes or anything else that may be of interest to you!
