Support Coordination is a funded support in your NDIS Plan in the Capacity Building category.
The purpose of this service is to support you to understand and implement the funded supports in your plan and link you to community, mainstream and other government services.
A Support Co-ordinator will focus on supporting you to build skills and connect to providers. They will assist you to negotiate with providers about what they will offer you and how much it will cost out of your plan.
Support Co-ordinators will ensure services agreements and service bookings are completed. They will help build your ability to exercise choice and control, to co-ordinate supports and access your local community.
They can assist you in planning ahead to prepare for your plan review. Support Co-ordinators will assist you to 'optimise' your plan ensuring that you are getting the most of your funded supports.
