Social Inclusion and Community Engagement: The Impact of Disability Services

Aastha Community Services

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a significant social reform in Australia aimed at providing support and services to people with permanent and significant disabilities. The introduction of NDIS represents a fundamental shift in the way disability services are funded and delivered. The NDIS operates through collaboration with various stakeholders—participants, families, service providers, and the community at large. The core principle of the NDIS is to provide individuals with disabilities greater choice and control over the support they receive. It functions on a person-centered approach, tailoring support plans to meet the specific needs and goals of each participant.

Individualised NDIS support plans, developed in consultation with participants, facilitate access to a range of support and services that enable individuals with disabilities to actively engage in their communities. Through these support and services, the scheme focuses on building individual capacities through skill development. This empowers participants to gain independence, confidence, and the ability to engage meaningfully in various social settings. Core supports funded by the NDIS such as Assistance with Daily Life, Assistance with Social and Community Participation, Transport and Assistive Technology as well as various capacity building supports funded by the NDIS are examples of this. These NDIS-funded supports equip individuals with disabilities to actively participate in their communities with ease and confidence.
