Innovative Community Participation
NDIS participants often face significant barriers to employment and community participation. Our program is designed to support NDIS participants to build skills and confidence in order to actively participate in their community. Through side-by-side practice, the program provides participants with the opportunity to expand their horizons and develop new skills. The program is delivered by highly skilled Community Engagement Practitioners who adopt a capacity-building, community-based approach. This approach has been shown to be effective in assisting participants to make the transition away from the service to informal supports and/or employment. The Side by Side program is an important resource for NDIS participants, helping them to overcome barriers and realise their potential.
