NDIS Support Coordination

A Support Coordinator is not a paid advocate or responsible for rostering and administration of individual supports.

Your Support Coordinator will work with you to explain:

  • how a Support Coordinator works with you to implement and monitor your NDIS plan
  • how to identify options for community, mainstream and funded NDIS supports
  • how you could meet with, choose and establish service agreements with providers
  • how to register for myGov website and link to NDIS Participant Portal myplace
  • how to navigate and check your details on myplace
  • If you are self-managing any element of your plan: how to make service bookings, monitor funding, submit payment requests and provide feedback.

We do this by:

  • Discussing your NDIS plan and what you want to achieve.
  • Determining what supports you want and need.
  • Determine what role you want us to take with your journey.
  • Working together to find providers that best meet your requirements.
  • We will negotiate and arrange the bookings on your behalf and around your schedule where possible.
  • We will negotiate and arrange the Service Agreements with your providers
  • Meetings:
    • Fortnightly, Monthly or quarterly, depending on your needs. This is to see how you are going with your NDIS Goals and how you are going with your providers.
    • To work with therapist (provider) to set goals for next period.
  • Feedback on your current providers and see how you are going.

NDIS Support Coordination was added in March 2022, through the desire to have an independent option for participants and others going through the NDIS process.

Samantha and Philip have extensive personal experience with NDIS and NDIA. Having two children using NDIS since 2014, they appreciate the stresses and challenges faced when locating and managing ethical, efficient and friendly providers. They have self-managed their children’s plans for over 10 years.

Philip has over 15 years Finance, Scheduling, Estimating, Procurement, and Logistics experience within the Manufacturing industry. He is a qualified Coach and Clinical Hypnotherapist. He is a member with ABNLP and AHA.
