Innovative Community Participation
It is designed to support NDIS participants to strengthen skills to participate in the community actively. The program involves highly skilled community engagement workers who help participants expand their opportunities for community participation and possible participation.
We at Personalised Support Services adopt a capacity building, community-based approach. We do so by working with the participants to increase their chances of uptake and successful transition away from the service to informal support and employment.
Like typical community participation, it has multiple benefits for the participants. You can use your NDIS funding to attend, and in few supports from Personalised Support Services, no funding is required. It is an excellent opportunity for the participants to make new connections, communicate, socialise and receive supports through activities, events and programs specially designed for you.
