Loneliness and isolation are major risks for individuals with impairments.

  • Social and Community Participation NDIS

Why is Community Participation Essential for People with Disabilities?

Suffering from a disability can be quite isolating and instil a fear of being rejected by society. While nothing can stop this fear from setting in, it can be managed by living with like-minded individuals and actively engaging in the community.

There are countless benefits of NDIS social and community participation among NDIS participants at Sheltering Arms:

  • Inclusion and Belonging: It can help people feel included and valued while facilitating social networks, lifelong friendships, and a sense of belonging.

  • Mental Health and Well-being: Isolation can lead to loneliness, anxiety, and depression, which are common among people with disabilities. Active community engagement can help prevent these negative feelings and improve mental health.

  • Access to Opportunities: Being an involved member of society increases access to employment opportunities, educational programs, and health services. Community participation opens doors to new experiences, learning opportunities, and personal growth.

  • Assistance with Self Care Activities NDIS: NDIS community participation activities play a pivotal role in facilitating self care activities, enabling individuals to enhance their independence and overall well-being.

  • Enriching Personal Lives: Community involvement allows individuals to explore their interests, passions, and talents. It provides a platform for self-expression, personal fulfilment, and making meaningful contributions to society.
