Social and recreational support is key to the NDIS reaching its objective to support people with a disability to achieve independence, social and economic community participation.
Social and recreational activities are a part of everyday life. These are activities that people do for fun and will help with your health and wellbeing. Being social and participating in recreational activities will assist you to meet new people and improve your life skills. When we talk about support for social and recreational activities funded by the NDIS, it means the additional help you need to take part in these activities because of your disability.
Social and recreation activities can include:
- visiting your friends and family
- active hobbies, such as bike riding, skiing and kayaking,
- playing sport, such as tennis, surfing or basketball
- going out, for instance to the movies or a concert
- going places for fun, such as shopping or visiting a museum
- relaxing, like meditation or yoga
- learning new skills, like dance, art classes or quilting
- Improving average daily living skills, like personal care, gardening, cooking
At Destination Accessible we pride ourselves on our capacity to match activities and carer’s to individual participants, to help meet their goals.
