Recreation and leisure activities are a critical dimension of the quality of life for all people, including those with disabilities. Community access is an important part of the life of a person with a disability, as it provides access to recreation tasks, social opportunities and enables an individual to develop skills and competencies.
While not all people need support to participate in community access and leisure activities, others may not have any access to these opportunities unless support, rehabilitation and training is provided.
What is it ?
Community Access is funded by the NDIS.
This service can include goal-based activities such as catching busses, trains or ferries, accessing local shops, attending medical appointments navigating to a relative or friends residence, or baying items from the shops.
Cooking and meal preparation can also be beneficial for some individuals, and this can also be completed with the Occupational Therapist.
Community access retraining focuses on grading therapy intervention, so over time the support is reduced, and the individual can get out and about independently. For more information about getting out and about, please contact us below.
