RAP (Recreation and Participation) Club is our community social club for people with disabilities aged 18 years and over. (If you’re 17 years of age and under, we also have a club for you! Click here).
Many adults with disabilities expressed a desire in their NDIS plan to make friends, try new things and get out and about in their community, so we created a great social club!
Every Saturday fortnight, members have a great time battling it out at laser tag or lounging about at rooftop movies, chilling at the pub, challenging each other at pool or mini-golf, trying new sports, having a punt at the casino – whatever they choose to do. There is a day RAP and a night RAP session, for people who like different types of activities.
Activities are chosen by club members and a calendar is prepared that shows the activities selected, dates, costs and any additional information that will help make the activity a great experience. Participants have great ideas and new experiences are constantly being added.
Crosslinks will pick participants up and return them home afterwards, unless alternative arrangements have been made. Participants from all over Perth are welcome but most live in Perth’s eastern suburbs.
We cater for individual needs but usually club members are assisted by our qualified, caring Support Workers on a 1:2 Support Worker to Participant ratio. This has the benefit of fostering friendships as well as reducing travel costs for members.
RAP Club supports can be paid for from your NDIS budget, if you have funding to access your community. Plus the cost for a RAP Club outing is roughly $35 to $50 depending on the activity, however it may be much cheaper if a free/low cost activity has been chosen by the group. Most outings also involve a meal which incurs a cost.
Give it a go!
