Live your best life and dare to try a new hobby, play sport, take a class, hang out with friends, and much more!
Under the NDIS, Social and Community services are about supporting people with a disability to take part in their community.
This is just another way of saying it’s about getting out and about, meeting people, and trying new things!
That might be an art class, going on a holiday, learning to play an instrument, or loads more activities.
At Aruma (formerly House with No Steps and The Tipping Foundation), there are so many ways for you to meet people, try new things and have fun!
And the best part is that you can access our Social and Community Participation services in your own home, in one of our hubs, or out in the community.
It’s completely up to you. What would you like to try?
You might decide to join a club, play sport, or go to the gym. Maybe you want to try a new hobby such as dancing, surfing, drama, photography, or music classes.
Or, does hanging out with some friends at BBQs or movie nights sound more like your thing?
The choice is yours!
If you like, we can also help you to volunteer for a worthy cause such as Meals on Wheels or Vinnies.
Yes, we do. You might know these as centre-based programs or day services where you can join us for the day in one of our hubs.
Sometimes you could head out for activities such as swimming or horse-riding, or you might choose to do an art or music class instead. You decide!

Yes, we have an amazing camp in Victoria for people with a disability.
You’ll be able to play games, go bushwalking, sing songs around the campfire, and get back to nature!
You can also explore the local area and maybe even see the penguin parade at Philip Island, visit a wildlife sanctuary, or go strawberry picking!
And of course, with trained and experienced disability support staff, you can relax knowing your support needs will be met.
Social and Community Participation services are funded under one of the following in your NDIS plan.
