What is Support Coordination?
A NDIS Support Coordinator will support you to understand and implement the funded supports in your NDIS plan and link you to the community, mainstream and other government services. A Support Coordinator will focus on supporting you to build skills and direct your life as well as connect you to providers. See more about Support Coordination on the NDIS website here.
