Social and Community Programs Have Many Benefits

All of us know how important it is to interact with other people in our community. Getting out and meeting new people is good for our physical and mental health. It may not seem like a big deal to you, but people with disabilities may find it a real challenge that they would appreciate being able to overcome. 

Participation in social and community activities is part of the NDIS plan. It falls under the category of Core Support. The inclusion of people with disabilities in the community and addressing aspects of their participation have been shown to have significant benefits. Before we explore the benefits, it is important to understand that if you are an NDIS participant and you have been approved for support and assistance, then you could benefit in the following ways:

This can lead to positive changes for disabled individuals and their families, by enhancing their self-esteem and personality. It can reduce the need for long-term care and support thereby reducing costs.

Those who have a disability on a slightly lower level can assist them in reducing their support.

Here are some examples:

  1. By breaking stereotypes, it will create a better network among people. Social and economic interaction will be improved.
  2. It enables people to interact and move independently without any assistance. Shopping and interacting can be done independently so they don’t have to rely on others.
  3. By providing accessible public transportation, people with disabilities can reduce their reliance on taxis or any other form of conveyance.
  4. Disability support can also increase participation in the workforce, making it easier for individuals with disabilities to gain employment.
  5. When people with moderate disabilities like vision or hearing impairment receive mobility services, they are less likely to be involved in any accidents that might lead to further injuries or disabilities.
  6. Participation will benefit the community as a whole. Australia’s social capital can be enhanced; the economy can be improved, and community diversity will improve.

Assistance in building and improving independence can also be included in this category. Within this category, you may be able to find experiences that will enhance your ability to interact and participate in your local community, such as sports, camps, classes, and vacations. A support worker can also assist you in participating in social and community activities.

Here are some examples:

  • Courses for personal development.
  • Participation in a sports club.
  • Joining a social or community group.
  • Engaging in community activities and events.
  • Day trips in the community to malls, movie theatres, shops, the library, and more.
  • Learning skills, art and craft classes, academic classes, or hobby classes like photography.
  • Going to camp.

The NDIS plan typically assesses the individual’s need and requirement for assistance with social and community participation on a one-to-one basis. It will be determined based on your needs. You should discuss your goals and expectations in detail with your NDIS service provider in Australia so that they can assist you in getting the benefits you are entitled to. One reason you should be prepared for the meeting with experts before finalising your NDIS eligibility for Australia is to ensure that you are eligible. At Complete Connect, we can help with that!

It can be beneficial for people who have any form of disability to increase and support community participation. Employment, health, income, education, and much more have all seen improvements. Community interaction may also reduce the need for longer-term care.
