Support Coordination is an NDIS service that helps participants navigate the disability support system and get the most out of their NDIS plan.
The aim of Support Coordination is to help participants build the skills and confidence they need to manage their own supports in the long term.
Support Coordination is delivered by an experienced Support Coordinator who works with the participant to identify their goals and needs, develop a plan of action, and connect them with the most appropriate supports and services.
The Support Coordinator will also help the participant to understand their NDIS plan and how to use it effectively.
Support Coordination can involve a range of activities, including:
Assessment & Planning: This involves identifying the participant’s goals, needs, and strengths, and developing a plan to achieve these goals.
Connecting with Supports & Services: The Support Coordinator will help the participant to find and connect with the most appropriate supports and services, such as disability providers, health professionals, and community organisations.
Coordination & Management of Supports: The Support Coordinator will work with the participant to ensure that their supports are being delivered in accordance with their plan and that any issues are addressed promptly.
Capacity Building: The Support Coordinator will help the participant to build their skills and knowledge in managing their supports, so that they can eventually take greater control of their own support arrangements.
Monitoring & Review: The Support Coordinator will regularly review the participant’s plan and progress, and make any necessary adjustments to ensure that they are getting the most out of their NDIS plan.
