Community Participation in Penrith
Social and community participation are important parts of an NDIS plan. This participation can involve social outings with friends, joining local clubs, gaining work experience, or volunteering in the community.
Community participation has several positive benefits, such as improved mental health, physical wellbeing, and achieving quality of life outcomes or goals. These supports can be tailored to each individual’s hobbies and interests, making the social interactions engaging, fun, and fulfilling.
An Interaction team member can work closely with participants to plan, organise, and coordinate community participation in Penrith or any other part of Sydney.
