Social and recreation supports are key to the NDIS achieving its objective to support people with a disability to achieve independence, social and economic participation.
Social and recreation activities are part of everyday life. These are activities everybody does for fun and can help with your health and wellbeing. They can also help you to meet new people and improve your skills. When we talk about support for social and recreation activities funded under the NDIS, we mean the extra help you need to take part in these activities because of your disability.
Social and recreation activities can include things like:
- visiting your friends and family
- active hobbies, such as bike riding, nature walks
- playing sport, such as tennis, swimming or basketball
- going out, for instance to the movies
- going places for fun, such as shopping or visiting a museum
- relaxing, like meditation or yoga
- learning new skills, like dance, art classes or quilting.
