What Are Social and Community Participation Services?

Under the NDIS, Social and Community services are about providing support to people having a disability to participate in their community.

This is just a different way of saying it’s about getting out and about, meeting people, and trying new things!

That might involve signing up for an art class, going on a holiday, learning to play an instrument, or numerous other activities.

What activities will I get to do?

It’s completely your choice. What would you like to try?

You might decide to be a part of a club, play sport, or go to the gym. Maybe you wish to try a new hobby like dancing, surfing, drama, photography, or music classes.

Or, does hanging out with some friends at BBQs or movie nights sound appealing to you?

The choice is all yours!

If you wish, we can also provide assistance to you to volunteer for a worthy cause such as Meals on Wheels or Vinnies.

Does All Supports Offer Group Programs?

Yes, we do. You might recognize these as center-based programs or day services where you can come and join us for the day.

Sometimes you could go out for activities like swimming or horse-riding, or you might opt to do an art or music class instead.

You decide!

Can All Supports Help Me Go on Holiday?

Yes, of course, we can. If you want to escape your daily life for a few days and explore, we can help you plan a holiday!

And, if you require support while you’re away, we can connect you with organizations that specialize in this service.

Remember that the NDIS does not cover the costs of any airfares, tickets, accommodation, and activities for both yourself and any support staff.

Does All Supports Offer Any Camps?

Yes, we have a fabulous camp in Victoria for people having a disability.

You can play games, go bushwalking, sing songs around the campfire, and return back to nature!

You can also traverse the local area and maybe even see the penguin parade at Philip Island, go to a wildlife sanctuary, or go strawberry picking!

And of course, with the help of trained and experienced disability support staff, you can relax knowing your support needs will be adhered to.
