Registered NDIS Provider
SeenCare can help NDIS participants engage in meaningful social and community activities
Doing things like visiting friends, going to the movies and playing sports aren’t just enjoyable—they’re also an important part of maintaining relationships and emotional well-being.
If disability makes it challenging for you to engage in social activities, SeenCare has a range of supports that can help you with community participation and access.
In short, social and community participation means going to places to join or undertake activities you enjoy.

This can look different for everyone. So increased social and community participation NDIS supports must be consumer-focused and developed in partnership with the participant.
There are many benefits to getting assistance with social and community participation.

Any activity that’s meaningful and involves some form of socialisation and community participation can be considered a community access NDIS service.
Some examples include:
If disability makes it difficult for you to independently undertake social activities, you can ask for funding in your plan to purchase relevant supports.
NDIS assistance with social and community participation will generally be funded in your Capacity Building Supports budget. This funding is designed to build your skills and independence to work toward personal goals.
The support funded varies between individuals. For example, one person might need assistance with mobility and communication. Whereas another participant’s main challenges could be around the planning and coordination of outings.
As Melbourne’s leading registered NDIS provider for participants with high medical needs, we understand how disability and health problems can impact your ability to access the community.
For many people, socialising can get put in the “too hard” or “nice to have” basket, and not be given the priority it deserves.
When you choose SeenCare as your NDIS provider, we’ll work with you to develop an individual community participation plan. This plan will be tailored to your needs and preferences, to help you get involved in meaningful and beneficial community activities. SeenCare is a registered NDIS provider with the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission. So you can feel confident in receiving safe and high quality supports to help you achieve your goals.
Below is a list of just some of the ways our team of disability support workers, home nurses and bulk-billing GPs can help with NDIS community participation.
If you don’t see what you need, please get in touch. We’ll be happy to discuss an individually tailored plan to meet your needs.
