Capacity Building NDIS

Capacity Building Activities

Capacity building in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) refers to supports designed to help participants build their independence and skills. These supports aim to improve the participant’s ability to manage daily activities, enhance social and community participation, and achieve their goals.

Here are the key aspects of capacity building in the NDIS:

  1. Skill Development: This includes training and education to develop new skills or improve existing ones, such as communication, social interaction, or independent living skills.

  2. Employment Support: Assistance with finding and maintaining employment, including job training and support in the workplace.

  3. Community Participation: Encouraging and supporting participants to engage in community activities, fostering social connections and inclusion.

  4. Health and Wellbeing: Supporting participants to manage their health and wellbeing, which may include diet, exercise, and managing health conditions.

Capacity building is crucial for enabling participants to gain greater independence, improve their quality of life, and achieve their personal goals. The supports are tailored to the individual needs and aspirations of each participant, ensuring that they receive the most appropriate and effective assistance.
