The National Disability Insurance Scheme NDIS is a complex system with a lot of moving parts. It can be challenging for participants to understand their plans, manage their providers and connect with other support services. A support coordinator is an integral part of the NDIS, providing participants with the help and guidance they need to access their supports. The job is rewarding and meaningful, but it can also be demanding. This blog post will discuss the role of a support coordinator, why it is important to be NDIS-registered, and what tools are available for success in this field.

The responsibilities of NDIS support coordination include helping participants build the skills they need to implement their plan, connecting them with services and building capacity in the community. This includes establishing relationships with local communities and other service providers, negotiating service prices and setting up agreements. It also involves finding any problems that may be affecting the ability to use a participant’s supports and resolving them.

NDIS support coordination is a service offered by private businesses that receive funding from the NDIS to help participants with their needs and goals. These businesses are known as plan management providers. Plan management providers offer a more comprehensive service than traditional support coordination. They will provide information about all NDIS-funded supports, including community and mainstream support services and advocate for the participant if needed. They will also be able to claim time for writing NDIA-requested reports and have greater budget oversight than non-registered providers.

Specialist support coordination is a higher level of support that assists NDIS participants who need help managing their complex circumstances. The goal of this type of support is to improve quality of life and increase independence. A specialist support coordinator will help a participant identify their unique situation and work with them to develop a holistic support plan that meets their needs. They will also work with a range of other NDIS funded support providers to ensure the plan is delivered effectively.
