Affordable Community Support Services
Community support services involve connecting with various communities who share similar or diverse interests and they mainly support activities for people with disabilities. There are also community support services for the elderly. Companies like First Support offer such community support services through community support programs.
Based on your NDIS plan, community support services can help you with various things like:
- Accessing educational programmes
- Participating in volunteering and employment opportunities
- Attending social and recreational events.
We have a tailored approach that helps you get the community support service that you need. Whether you need short-term or long-term assistance, regular help with daily routines and personal care or occasional household help, need help going to and from appointments or need regular medication reminders, the staff at First Support will help you with the tasks.
