Innov Community Participation

Innovative Community Participation

Our program for innovative community participation is meant to offer all support to the NDIS participants. It helps in building skills to participate in the community in a more meaningful way. With our team of experts, we assist participants in expanding their opportunities for community participation and employment. 

Our team adopts a capacity-building, community-based approach by working with participants in their local community to increase the likelihood of uptake and successful transition away from the service to informal supports and employment.

Our team of workers maintain a focus on resilience, wellbeing and personal growth to connect to the community successfully, however, each service is tailored to best suit the participant, and their goals, to allow them to get the most out of the service. As appropriate, participants who access this program can expect support working on:

  • The importance of community engagement, social contribution and relationships in maintaining personal wellbeing
  • Self-awareness and self-care
  • Gaining awareness of personal interests, skillsets and passions and linking these to employment pathways
  • Emotional awareness and self-regulation
  • Adaptive social competency, including increased awareness of social norms and expectations
  • Their relationship with their disability, independence, confidence and self-worth
  • Navigating systems and programs to successfully participate in their community and employment pathway preparation and support to access training and employment opportunities
