We will need to understand what support you need because of your disability and what barriers you face to participating in the social and recreation activity. We’ll look at any information we have about your support needs when we decide how much support to include in your plan. Evidence from an allied health professional or psychologist can be helpful when we consider the supports you need.
In your plan, you’ll need to have a goal that you want to take part in social and recreation activities. We can help you with goal setting during planning conversations.
We’ll think about who is best to provide the social and recreation support and, if needed, help you find a service or organisation.
You should think about how you can use your supports flexibly. You may be able to use your supports for different social and recreation activities. You may already have social and recreation supports included in your Core budget. You can use this funding flexibly for the help you need, because of your disability, to participate in social and recreation activities.
You can talk to your Support Coordinator, local area coordinator, early childhood partner or planner about this at any time.
Once we’ve approved your plan, you can start using your supports for social and recreation activities. Talk to your Support Coordinator, local area coordinator, early childhood partner or planner for more information.
We fund most social and recreation supports in your Core budget. If we fund assistive technology for your social and recreation supports, you’ll find this funding in your Capital budget. Learn more about using your budget .
If your needs change and you don’t have enough funding in your plan, you should talk to us. You might be able to use your Core budget flexibly or you might need a change to your plan. Learn more about changing your plan .
