Don't let fear stop you from enjoying your life

It’s important to remember that you’re not alone in this. Many people struggle with anxiety when it comes to community participation, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. It can feel daunting to try and break out of your comfort zone, but at SHCS, we’ll help you with the exact steps you can take to reduce your social anxiety and gain renewed confidence in social settings.


Finally find the confidence to break out of your comfort zone

Do you find it challenging to go shopping by yourself? Being anxious about the thought of having to go outside is completely normal. That’s why SHCS helps you take the first step towards having the courage to have social interactions by yourself. Our NDIS community participation program gets you out of your comfort zone with a wide range of activities, including bowling, karaoke, golf, hiking, a silent disco, a royal Easter show, and group picnics.

Feel confident to leave the house

It can be difficult to muster up the confidence to leave your home when you have anxiety. That's why our NDIS community participation provides you with a safe and secure space to regain that independence. We help build your skills so you can feel confident in tackling everyday tasks like grocery shopping.

Get the chance to explore your hobbies

We make sure that everyone can feel confident and comfortable in exploring new things. However, a new interest might not be what you’re looking for, but wanting to re-engage in an old one at SHCS will ensure whatever it is, we will help you find your spark again, whether it be bowling, karaoke, discos or exploring new places.

Create meaningful connections with like-minded people who understand your potential and help you stay motivated. Enjoy the community spirit, inspiring activities, and support of others who are taking the same journey as you.

You choose who you want to work with

We want to make sure that you feel safe and comfortable with the person who will be with you on a regular basis. Which is why at SHCS, you get to choose who you want to work with.

Community participation in the NDIS is about empowering people to have more options for how they receive services, support and information. It’s also about helping individuals feel included and valued as part of their local community.

It involves connecting people with other members of their local community, and encouraging them to access the range of activities available that could benefit them. This could include sport and recreation activities, educational programs, employment opportunities or volunteering roles. The aim is to help individuals integrate into their local community so they can reach their goals and live a full life.

Yes, absolutely! NDIS price guides include a range of supports for community participation, such as:

  • Finding or attending recreational activities or events in the community
  • Developing skills to access and utilise mainstream services
  • Building on your existing relationships with family, friends and community organisations.

It’s important to remember that NDIS funding must be used to achieve goals identified in your NDIS plan. So when it comes to community participation, you need to consider how each activity or service will contribute towards your NDIS plan objectives.

When selecting NDIS supports for community participation, think about what services are available in your local area and which ones would be most beneficial for you.
