Description: The Community Participation program helps young people with disability to develop the skills they need to work towards their goals, increase their independence and participate in their community. Community Participation is for young people with disability with moderate to very high support needs who need an alternative to paid employment or further education in the medium or longer term. There are four levels of funding known as ‘funding bands’ in Community Participation. These are moderate, high, very high and exceptional. Each person is allocated to a funding band based on their support needs which are determined through the Post School Programs eligibility assessment.
