HOW TO CHOOSE A SUPPORT COORDINATOR?
You can get Support Coordination from many organisations, but there are big differences between them. Here’s some important points to look for when you’re making your decision:
- Independence – an organisation which doesn’t deliver direct disability supports themselves
- Network – someone who can give you a wide choice of service providers, wherever you are and whatever you need
- Local Knowledge – to help you make the right choices from the service providers in your area
- Strong Support – look for someone who is committed to working closely with you, understanding your needs, and responding to you quickly and professionally.
Support Coordination can be funded by the NDIS, so there’s no cost to you. Not everyone is eligible, though. To get Support Coordination included in your NDIS plan, we recommend discussing and requesting it in your planning meeting. The NDIS will decide if you are eligible. For more information on the eligibility criteria for Support Coordination, read this handy blog.
