What NDIS supports does AAV offer?

Arts Access Victoria is a registered NDIS service provider, so you can include our supports and services in your NDIS plans! We can work with you to meet your creative goals, whether it's making art for fun or pursuing a career in the arts and cultural sector.

This page features some broad information about what we offer NDIS participants – because each person has different goals and needs, it's best to get in touch with us prior to your planning meeting and we can work with you to create a package of fantastic, personalised creative supports. 

Planning support

AAV can support NDIS participants to advocate for arts and cultural participation in their plans. We offer many levels of support, from phone-based advice and support to providing a support person for your planning meeting or plan appeal.

Making and experiencing art

AAV can support you to make and experience art as part of a group or independently. As an AAV participant, you can build your creative skills, meet new people, and have fun.

We can work with you to develop an NDIS plan that mixes Core and Capacity Building supports to enable you to:

  • Participate in group-based arts programs, like our Art Day South or Way Out West groups – or create a new group that meets your creative needs 
  • Develop or improve social skills and relationships through making and experiencing art 
  • Engage independently in arts and cultural activities, like community workshops

Engaging in the Community

We can support you to engage with your local community and find new creative communities so you can meet new people, develop your artmaking and have new creative experiences. We can assist you to develop an NDIS plan that mixes Core and Capacity Building supports to enable you to:

  • Engage with mainstream and community arts and cultural programs and services – for example visiting Arts Centre Melbourne or joining an AAV art program 
  • Engage in arts and cultural activities in the community to reduce the risk of social isolation
