Support Coordination

The role of a support coordinator is to help individuals with disabilities or special needs to:

Understand Their NDIS Plan: This involves explaining the funding and services available to them through the NDIS, as well as assisting them in comprehending their goals and how to achieve them.

Navigate Services and Providers: Support coordinators help individuals identify suitable service providers and understand their options. They can provide information about available services, assist in selecting appropriate providers, and facilitate the connection between the individual and the service provider.

Plan Implementation: Once the individual has selected their preferred services and supports, the support coordinator helps in organizing and implementing the plan, ensuring that it aligns with the individual’s goals and needs.

Monitoring and Review: Support coordinators continuously monitor the individual’s progress and the effectiveness of the supports and services. They facilitate regular reviews to assess whether the individual’s goals are being met and if any adjustments or changes to the plan are necessary.

Advocacy and Empowerment: Support coordinators advocate for the rights and interests of the individual, ensuring that they have a voice in decision-making processes and empowering them to make informed choices about their supports and services.
