hi,
just something i thought i'd ask seeing as I've got to see CM next week.
Could Social rehab funding cover paying fees to attend sports or hobby groups
if it could aid the claimants social rehabilitation?
For example..... my son could really benefit from doing a few after school activities or interests as 'socially' hes reverting into his shell a bit more. I feel he really needs to get out and 'do' stuff if hes to improve his esteem and lifeskills.
I know a lot of people claim gym or swimming fees to help them recuperate could this extend to a kids 'socialization and normalisation'.?
any thoughts appreciated,
regards
tracey

Have a look in the schedules in the 2001 act Karlasmum.There is a broader description of entitlements for social rehab in there.

Hi Ya karlasmum11111

You asked Could Social rehab funding cover paying fees to attend sports or hobby groups

the answer is Yes

our son had sports down under training for independence/education support
not only that ACC paid for a carer to come along to help him under attendant care: and also paid transport for independence.

So you go girl asked for and you will get

thanks for this info,
am seeing cm wednesday morning so will try her to see if i have any luck.
Though after telling her that everything shes done this past 15months is illegal and that i want it all redone i'll probably be lucky not to get escorted out of the office via security.
thanks for your time,
regards
