NDIS Support for Enhanced Living in the Northern Suburbs Melbourne

The importance of sports and recreation for people with disabilities is rapidly gaining ground today. Sports and other physical activities are being accepted as unconventional forms of physical and mental treatments for various ailments. Specially designed work-outs for individuals with disabilities and aged individuals can contribute to their holistic well-being and fitness.

As a registered NDIS disability services provider, Sheltering Arms offers NDIS social and recreational support for various activities in and around the Northern suburbs of Melbourne. We encourage our NDIS clients to actively participate in such events as it fosters social skills and interaction with the community. Active participation in NDIS recreational activities also has many physical and mental benefits including:

  • Increase in muscle strength
  • Improvement in body balance and motor skills
  • Enhanced cardiovascular endurance
  • Higher levels of energy and mood elevation

  • Increase in capacity to work independently
  • Lifting of mood and spirits

In addition to the above pointers, participating in community events introduces NDIS participants to additional benefits. It can help them pick up new skills and boost their confidence when interacting with their peers.

  • Sport and recreation have the unique benefit of transcending social, linguistic, and cultural borders. Its universal popularity and ability to draw people of different backgrounds together is the reason why disability sports and recreation are fantastic tools to encourage the inclusion and well-being of people with disabilities

  • Achieving short-term goals like being able to run for a certain amount of time or scoring a goal makes the participant feel proud and accomplished

  • Team sports promote the feeling of brotherhood and effectively teach communication and leadership

  • Not giving up, learning to lose gracefully and fighting to win or improve performance are also some aspects taught by social and community participation in NDIS programs
  • Mental faculties are sharpened as sports activities often require a high level of concentration, critical thinking and quick decision-making

  • NDIS social and recreational support events can be physically exhausting and hence, promotes a good night’s sleep

What Kind of Sport Can People with Disabilities Participate in?

Most sports activities including archery, athletics, basketball, cycling, and bowling can be modified for the participation of people with disabilities. At Sheltering Arms, we host events that include similar sports as well as other recreational activities. Our aim is to create a safe space where NDIS participants can indulge their inner sportsperson.

Competitive sport for individuals with disabilities is a part of the Paralympic Sports structures. The Paralympic Games, a major international multi-sport event for athletes with a physical disability, is a celebration of their ability to participate in sports normally. Participation in sports and recreation from an early age can help young diasbled kids with a successful career in sports. If you have the right attitude and support system like Sheltering Arms, the sky’s the limit.

How Can Our Disability Support Coordinators Assist You?

NDIS support coordination is a key aspect of our disability support services and is meant to help you navigate through the various support programmes offered through the NDIS. Our NDIS coordinators will help you find the best supports and receive the maximum benefit out of them in the following ways:

  • Capacity building : Most NDIS participants may not have a fair idea about the various support systems available to them or how to integrate them into their plans. As NDIS support coordination providers, we guide them through the process and contribute towards their independence.

  • Proper planning : Our NDIS coordinators also provide assistance with discovering plans that are better suited to your needs and requirements. Different NDIS plans can be similar yet deliver different benefits. We will help you distinguish between them and choose the right one for your situation.

  • Maximum benefits : Choosing the right supports is one half of the process. Getting the maximum benefit out of the support is the final half. Our support coordinators for NDIS participants will help you use your support to achieve your goals and coordinate different supports to receive the maximum benefit from your NDIS plan.

  • Networking : Part of our NDIS support coordination role is to connect you with the community, peers, support workers and other beneficial programmes. This will help you build connections with people who can further your goals and help you on your journey.
  • Confidence booster : As support coordinators for NDIS, we will teach you relevant skills needed to create an effective NDIS plan. This is meant to give you control over the various supports in your plan and ultimately give you the confidence to deal with them independently.
