Connected Self’s Innovative Community Participation Program is designed to support NDIS participants to build skills to actively participate in their community. Through side-by-side practice, the program involves highly skilled Community Engagement Practitioners who assist participants to expand their opportunities for community participation and employment. Community Engagement Practitioners adopt 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/or employment.
Community Engagement Practitioners maintain a focus on resilience, wellbeing and personal growth to successfully connect to the community, however each service is tailored to best suit the participant, and their goals, to allow them to get the most out of the service.
