You as an NDIS participant has the choice on who you want as a Support Coordinator.
While support coordinators are there to help you, it's important to remember that you are in charge of your own care and support. If you feel that your current support coordinator is not meeting your needs or is not a good fit for you, you have the right to request a change. This is your right as a participant in the support coordination program, and it's important to exercise it if you feel it's necessary.
There are a few steps you can take if you want to change your support coordinator:
- Talk to your current support coordinator: It's always a good idea to try and address any concerns or issues you have with your current support coordinator directly. They may not be aware of your concerns, and addressing them directly can often resolve any issues.
- Contact your support coordination provider: If talking to your current support coordinator does not resolve your concerns, you can reach out to the provider that employs them. The provider should have a process in place for handling requests for a support coordinator change.
It's important to remember that you have the right to change your support coordinator if you feel that it's necessary. Don't be afraid to speak up and advocate for your needs. Your support coordinator is there to help you, and it's their job to ensure that you have the support and resources you need to live a fulfilling and independent life.
If you are unhappy with your support coordinator you can choose another coordinator. It could be one from your current service or you can choose a completely different service. The choice is yours.
