Participants will need to pay the fees or registration costs of the program so that they are eligible for the full support from our staff. Regardless of whether short-term aid or support for an ongoing activity is required, Sheltering Arms will deliver. In some cases, the core budget may already have provisions for a social and community participation NDIS plan. This funding can be used for the assistance with social and community events. Our team is always on hand to guide our NDIS clients regarding disability sports and recreation support.
Participants may find themselves unable to attend such activities due to location issues. An activity a participant is really interested in may be held in a different city or state altogether. In such cases, Sheltering Arms offers NDIS short-term accommodation, NDIS medium-term accommodation, NDIS respite accommodation, NDIS transport services, NDIS supported independent living, NDIS assistance with daily life and assistance with self care activities NDIS services for the participant and their caregivers. This allows them to attend such activities and relax and recuperate at the same time.

What Are the Benefits of Community Participation in a Social Setting?
Humans crave social interaction and a sense of belonging, preferably to a group that understands and respects us. This basic human need is behind our desire to connect with one another and must not be ignored. For a person with a disability, social and community participation by NDIS is an opportunity to go out and about, meet new people and find much-needed connection with other human beings. The benefits of engaging in community participation are many, but here are a few to help you make a decision:
Meeting people with different stories inspires you to try new things
You learn to step out of your comfort zone
Your confidence and your family’s confidence in your abilities to handle yourself socially increases significantly
Making new friends is always a welcome outcome of community participation
You might end up meeting people who will remain special to you for the rest of your life
It broadens your mind and changes your perspectives on life
Makes you confident and happy with your life and increases your sense of contentment
How Do I Get Funding For NDIS Community Participation?
Sheltering Arms is a registered NDIS disability services provider in Epping. We encourage people to check their NDIS plans for assistance with community participation. This is important because the amount for transportation, support worker fees and any other kind of special alteration or tools can be covered under your NDIS plan.
While choosing or planning an activity, talk to us so that we can help you figure out what kind of assistance will be required and if it is included in your NDIS plan or not. For the NDIS to cover any activity under its plan, it must first be considered “reasonable and necessary”. Some of the activities or expenses not covered under NDIS plans include:
Food costs while attending an event
Ticket expenses and entry fees to venues or activities
Costs of sporting equipment except for specialist gear
All in all, costs are related to your disability and the goals of your NDIS Plan.
