Make your own group 

If you have ideas about activities you would like to try, we’re always open to starting new groups and connecting with community members that can make it happen. You might even want to invite some of your friends and be supported as a group to have a whole lot of fun together. We can help by creating a program that suits you and your friends and provide the support staff and transport as needed. 

 

How do I pay? 

Our Community and Social Activities are available to anyone who receives a funding package from the NDIS. In your NDIS plan, this could be listed under your Core budget in assistance with social and community participation. There are also options to pay for the service if you don’t have a plan.
