Assistance With Social & Community Participation

Support to get involved with your community

Get more involved with your community, be social, and participate in recreational activities with our range of social and community supports designed to help you enjoy your hobbies, see your friends, and have some fun.

If you are an NDIS participant and have been approved for the support category 'Core Supports’, you are able to access 'social and community participation' activities using your NDIS plan.


Participation in community, social and civic activities

Join in community, social and civic activities in your area with support from our friendly carers who will be with you every step of the way, helping you participate, and strengthening your ability to participate independently. Together we’ll find activities that you can join and help you get the most of it.

Group and centre based activities

Ozcare has eight day respite centres located around Queensland that provide you with a fun, social outing where you’ll get to meet new people and get involved with our activities.

Whether you like to have a dance, do some craft, or borrow books from the library, we have something for everyone. We often go on excursions to have a picnic or visit a local attraction, or have people come to our centre to perform for us. Our activities are designed to be enjoyed by everyone and we can offer you support to join in if you need it.

Our cooks provide a delicious morning tea and lunch for you to enjoy, and cater for all dietary requirements. If you need help getting here, we can help with that too. Most of our day respite centres offer transport to and from your home, if you live in surrounding suburbs.

If you’d like to visit one of our day respite centres before you join, call your nearest centre for a tour.

Support Categories

Each support category contains a number of services that you can choose from to help achieve your goals. You can use your budget for any of services within that support category, but you are unable to use this budget for services within another support category. In some cases, you may be approved for a specific support (rather than a category). In this case, you will need to use your budget for this specific service only.
