Benefits of Social and Community Participation

No matter how comfortable your home is, nobody likes to be cooped up in one place for extended periods of time. That is why humans travel or meet new people. New experiences open our minds to different cultures and peoples. NDIS community participation activities are designed to provide the same mind opening experiences to people with disabilities. Apart from that, community and social participation helps NDIS participants in the following ways:

  • Builds and improves self-esteem and confidence

  • Paves the way for self-improvement and development

  • Gives a chance to contribute to society

  • Leads to a more inclusive community that can help in times of crises

  • Facilitates employment opportunity for a person with disability, leading to economic independence

  • Creates a support network of people who understand you
