Increased Social and Community Participation

Social Community and Participation - AvocadoCare

This support category assists you to develop skills that will help you to access the community independently.

Our Increased social and community participation support services include:

  • Developing life skills: public transport training, help attending appointments, shopping and bill paying.
  • Recreation and leisure activities.
  • Personal interest activities like art, woodwork, beauty, cooking and volunteering.
  • Supported holidays.
  • Building your self confidence.
  • Support you and share your story to heal your soul.
  • Building your social communication skills.

 

Communication Skills

Communication skills can make or break any relationship – with friends, family members, partners, or even co-workers. Communicating well means you can get your point across clearly and mastering the art of listening shows other people that you care about what they have to say.

 

Storytelling

Storytelling has always been a big part of society and relationships. First Nations people use stories that date back tens of thousands of years to pass history and culture from one generation to the next.
At Avocadocare, we use stories to talk about real issues and real lives.

We believe in giving people with disability, mental health, or psychosocial issues a place to share their stories, which can help bring people together. There are lots of positives to sharing your story and, depending on what you are cool with, many different ways to do it.

 

Why Your Story Matters

Ever listened to someone talk about their life and thought ‘Oh, someone else has been through that, too? I thought it was just me!’ Finding similarities with other people helps us live happy and healthy lives. Your life may feel ordinary to you, but it might seem extraordinary to someone else. Every story shared is a chance to make someone feel less alone.

Avocadocare Provider of Social and Community Participation Around Victoria

Social Community and Participation

How do we do it?

Where we can, we create groups of people of the same age and areas of interest. We run activities on weekdays and weekends.

We can deliver our activities individually or in a group, in your home or at our training hub, depending on what you need or are interested in.

 

What is not covered?

This is where Social and Community Participation funding can get a little tricky. You can’t generally use your NDIS funding to pay for the cost of tuition, courses, or classes such as a woodworking class.

However, if it is a ‘reasonable and necessary cost that relates to your disability and is closely connected to the goals in your NDIS Plan, you may be able to use the Social and Community Participation budget to pay for some other costs associated with participating.

Keep in mind, the following are generally not covered by the NDIS:

  • Ticket prices or entry fees such as movie tickets or entry to a museum
  • Ticket prices or entry fees for your support worker or a person accompanying you
  • The cost of meals, coffee, or other food items while you are attending activities
  • Equipment costs such as buying sporting gear except for the purchase of specialized equipment related to your disability.

We also have Transportation Services for disabled.
