Support Coordination is a service provided under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). It is designed to help and give individuals with disabilities the assistance they need in understanding, managing, and effectively implementing the funded supports outlined in their NDIS plans. For more comprehensive information on Support Coordination, please visit the NDIS website.
The primary goal of Support Coordination is to empower individuals, helping them navigate the complexities of their NDIS plans and make the most of the funded support available to them. This includes assistance in understanding the details of their plan, identifying their goals and needs, and learning how to use their funds efficiently and strategically.
Support Coordination provides individuals with the tools and support to take charge of their NDIS plan and live their lives to the fullest.
One of the critical responsibilities of a Support Coordinator is to support individuals in building skills that will enable them to lead their lives more effectively. This might involve teaching each person how to manage their plan independently, making informed decisions about their support services, or helping them develop problem-solving and negotiation skills.
Another vital aspect of their role is connecting individuals with suitable service providers. This involves researching and shortlisting providers best suited to meet the individual’s needs, facilitating introductions, and arranging delivery services. They also monitor the quality of these services and address any issues that might arise.
Furthermore, a Support Coordinator assists in planning ahead and preparing for plan reviews, ensuring that individuals can demonstrate the positive impacts of their funding and identify and advocate for their future needs.
At The Housing Connection (THC), we take pride in our dedicated team of Support Coordinators who embody the core values of our organisation. As a small to medium-sized NDIS provider, we prioritise each participant’s needs, offering a tailored and individualised service that truly makes a difference.
A Support Coordinator plays an essential role in this process. They act as a liaison, linking the participant with a wide range of resources and services. These may include community and mainstream services such as health and education, and other government services. Their role is multifaceted, encompassing both advocacy and connection.
