Accessing the Community
Supporting community and social participation through a range of group and individual supports
Multicap Tasmania can assist you to get involved in your local community, to do the things you want to do and when you want to do them.
Our supports enable you to undertake the activities you wish to get involved in, either individually or as part of a group. If you have funding for group or individual funding, we can assist you to live the life you wish and to do the things that are important to you.
Working together with you and your family or support network, we will create a personalised plan around your goals and aspirations, and identify the programs and supports that will assist you to achieve them. Support can complement your existing informal supports, such as your family, friends and other community members.
Multicap Tasmania caters to many different needs and interests in a safe and supportive environment, both within our hubs and in the local community.

Frequently asked questions
- Who can get supports to access the community?
We can support you to access the Community as either a member of a group or individually, depending on funding available through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funding, or on a fee-for-service basis.
- Can I get the supports when I need them?
Yes, you are in control of when you access supports and what you use them for. We can help tailor a support plan that meets your individual needs. This includes weekdays, evenings and weekends.
