ACHIEVING YOUR PERSONAL GOALS AS A COMMUNITY MEMBER
OFFERING COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES, GIVING YOU CHOICE AND FREEDOM
Innovative community participation is a program designed to support participants with the opportunity to take part in special activities that are not covered by other community participation categories.
By providing additional support to make engagement in the community more accessible, participants are more likely to fulfil their personal goals, which for many is increased independence and achieving inclusivity.
Receiving support under this category can assist with achieving many people’s long-term goals, which often include creating new social and educational opportunities.
Feeling connected to the community has been shown to have a profound effect on promoting positivity around all aspects of life including education, employment, health, and satisfaction.
Some examples of the fantastic initiatives offered under this category
are cooking and sports classes where you can learn new skills. Workshops on finding suitable employment as well as classes to improve existing skills as well as learn new ones.
