Community Participation Activities | 09_011_0125_6_3

Unit: Each


NDIS support item 09_011_0125_6_3 is designed to enable providers to claim reimbursement for the costs of tuition fees, art classes, sports coaching and similar activities that build a participant’s skills and independence. This could include camps, classes, and vacation activities that have capacity building components. The support includes assistance to establish volunteer arrangements in the community, mentoring, peer support, and individual skill development

All supports claimed under this support item need to be reasonable and necessary given the participant’s plan goals. Supports that could be claimed include:

  • Universal recreational activities: A limited number of lessons to enable a participant to try out an activity and test their capability and interest in further pursuing this activity – such as horse riding, art, dance or singing classes.
  • Attendance at a “camp” or group that builds a participant’s relationship skills and offer a range of activities and opportunities to explore wider interests.
  • Other items or adjustments such as customised tools required because of the participant’s disability.

This support item is not subject to price limits. It should only be used to recover the costs of the participant’s attendance at the community participation activities. Where a support item does not have a price limit then the provider and participant should agree on the reasonable price for the support. If necessary, they should also agree on the billing schedule for the support. For example, they might agree that a support should be claimed weekly. These claims are subject to the general claiming rules, including that, in general, supports can only be claimed for after they have been delivered.
