Bharosa Community Services: Experiencing the Power of Community Access in the NDIS

At Bharosa Community Services, we understand that social and community participation is a cornerstone of a fulfilling life. That’s why Community Access is a core service we offer to our NDIS participants.

What is Included in Community Access?

Community Access supports the aim to empower you to engage with your community in a meaningful way. This can include a variety of activities, such as:

  • Accessing essential services like shopping, doctor appointments, and education
  • Joining clubs or social groups
  • Participating in hobbies and recreational activities
  • Volunteering in your community
  • Attending cultural events
  • Building and maintaining relationships with friends and family

Why is Social and Community Participation Important?

Research tells us that social and community participation offers a wealth of benefits, including:

  • A sense of belonging and connection: Feeling like you’re part of something bigger can significantly boost your well-being.
  • Stronger relationships: Community activities provide opportunities to connect with friends, family, and new people who share your interests.
  • Reduced isolation: Participating in your community helps you combat feelings of loneliness and isolation.
  • Increased confidence: Engaging with your community can build your confidence and self-esteem.
  • A sense of safety: Feeling comfortable and supported in your community develops a sense of security.
  • New opportunities: Community participation can open doors to employment, volunteering, or further education.
