ClassBento has a wide range of fun leisure activities, that are perfect for social and community participation.
Art and craft classes are a proven way to reduce stress, improve mental wellbeing and creativity.
We have a wide range of classes, held online and in-person, and you can use your NDIS funding to book these in.
Meet our friendly teachers, and enjoy a relaxing experience, in a casual environment. Almost all our classes are beginner-friendly, with materials provided.
If you're self-managed, you can just book in classes directly - we'll automatically send you invoices upon receiving your bookings, which you can then claim with NDIS.
Otherwise, if you use a plan manager, just follow the easy process below. We've worked with plan managers like My Plan Manager, Moira, Plan Partners, Leap In, Instacare, Integra, Bright Plan Management, Your Choice DPM, and more.
How it works
Check that your NDIS plan covers our classes.
The support categories that participants typically use on our classes are Social & community participation, and Capacity building.
If you're unsure, please ask your plan manager.
Create an account with us, by filling the form below (takes less than a minute)
This account will allow you to book classes, via a special invoicing process, explained in the next few steps.
If you are a support coordinator booking on behalf of multiple clients, please create a separate account for each client. If you'd like all communications to go to your email, when creating accounts on our site, you can use your email and then add a "|" at the end to make it unique, E.g. [email protected]|clientName1, [email protected]|clientName2
Browse our classes, and get invoices
Find a class you like, select a preferred date, then click the 'Book' button. You'll be taken to the 'checkout' page. There, click the button to create your NDIS invoice.
If you'd like your support worker to attend with you, please either:
You send the invoice(s) to your plan manager
Your plan manager pays ClassBento
This could be as fast as a few days, or it could take several weeks; it really depends on your plan manager.
To follow up on the status of these payments, you should contact your plan manager directly.
It may be a good idea to book classes that are several weeks away in the future, to allow enough time for the payments to arrive.
We book you in
We'll book you into your class, within 2 business days of receiving the payment.
If your class date has passed or it got sold out, we'll get in touch to let you reschedule, or use the funds towards another class.
You'll be notified via email
Once we book you in, you'll immediately get an order confirmation email with all the information you'll need.
Then, one day before the class, we'll send you a reminder.
If you haven't received an order confirmation email yet, it means that we haven't yet received the funds and processed your order, so please wait to receive this email before you attend the class. You may need to check your spam or promotions email folders.
Attend and enjoy the class!
When you're ready, go back to step 3 and book some more classes!
