NDIS Social and Community Participation
Gain the confidence to connect with others
We strive to give participants the confidence to connect with others and grow their social circles. Our activities are designed not just to entertain but also to facilitate meaningful connections between our participants and the wider community.
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 gain renewed confidence through our NDIS social and community participation programs.
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 social and 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.

What are some of the activities I can try?
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.
Can I get community participation included in my plan?
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.
