  • provide outreach supports to Northern, Eastern, Western and Southern suburbs of Adelaide

 

 

CAPACITY BUILDING: SUPPORT COORDINATION

Level 2 Coordination of Supports 

A support coordinator will work side by side with you to strengthen your ability to coordinate and implement supports in your NDIS plan so you can participate more fully in the community. This involves working together to understand your plan & funding, identify what you expect from services and connecting you to the best services for your needs. A support coordinator will help develop your capacity to implement and manage your NDIS supports more independently over time.

Level 3 Specialist Support Coordination

A Specialist Support Coordinator will work side by side with you to address any barriers impacting your ability to implement your NDIS plan and access appropriate supports. This involves working together to understand your plan & funding, identify what you expect from services and connecting you to the best services for your needs. A Specialist Support Coordinator will negotiate appropriate support solutions and assist you to access to relevant supports during crisis situations.

What you can expect from our Support Coordinators

  • Meet with you at your family home, your school or organisation or at our central location in the Adelaide CBD to discuss and action your NDIS plan.
  • Assist you to build your NDIS knowledge and confidence by understanding your NDIS plan and the funding possibilities.
  • Support you to work towards your goals within your expectations and budget by finding the best services for you and your needs, including linking you to informal, mainstream & community supports.
  • Support you with your future NDIS reviews to ensure your plan continues to meet your goals and needs.
  • Build your capacity to manage your NDIS supports more independently over time by supporting you to access tools and resources that you can keep.
