Ben's Bike Ride to Health

Men’s Health Week in focus

For Men’s Health Week this June, we are focusing on connecting men with the resources they need for a healthier, happier lifestyle.

The physical and mental benefits of exercise are well-known. Yet many people can struggle to get the right amount of physical exercise each day. People with disabilities are often presented with an even greater barrier to enjoying exercise safely. Here’s a great example of how Pathways To Care can help people get the most out of their NDIS funds and connect them with the right support.

One happy participant

Ben’s NDIS funding allowed for him to get a custom-made bike to allow him to join his family on bike rides again. His Support Coordinator worked with Ben to utilise $10,000 in his budget to have a bike designed to meet his requirements.

Ben’s bike is going to significantly improve his ability to be involved in family activities and increase his health and fitness level. He can now safely ride alongside his father and brother thanks to his new bike. Ben’s father confirms Ben is “really excited to start riding again”.
