What is Support Coordination?

A support coordinator is someone who supports you to understand, utilise and maximise your NDIS funding. A support coordinator will work alongside you to help connect you to a range of supports that will assist you to reach your NDIS goals. Your support coordinator will assist you to increase your choice and control over your services and ultimately support you to have a greater quality of life.

What is Specialist Support Coordination?

A Specialist Support Coordinator will be funded when a participant has complex needs. Supports will typically be provided by a qualified practitioner, such as a Social Worker or Occupational Therapist.

Specialist support coordinators will support you to manage challenges in your support environment, which may involve services such as health and justice.

Support Coordination Funding

Previously, you needed to have the support coordination funding category in your NDIS plan in order to receive support coordination services. The NDIS have made it easier to access support coordination services as you can now utilise your Core funding.

Our Support Coordination team are here to support you and ease your journey with the NDIS. If you have any questions, please contact our friendly team today!
