Your NDIS plan will cover your support costs and are included in your CHSS Service Agreement. Some of our activities may include costs that aren’t included in your NDIS plan.
Any extra costs that you will need to pay for out of your own money for each activity. If you pick an activity that you need to pay for, you can pay in cash on the day of the activity. You will be given a receipt for these costs. Transport costs are invoiced fortnightly with two options to suit your transport needs.

Community Participation activities are held at the CHSS Hub at 14 Scarba Street as well as out in the community. The timetable of activities might change throughout the year based on which activities are popular with participants.
