What is Support Coordination?
Support coordination is a process that helps individuals with disabilities access the services and resources they need to achieve their goals and live independently. This can include assistance with finding and coordinating services such as therapy, transportation, housing, and employment.
There are three levels of support coordination that can be included in your plan:
Specialised Support Coordination
Generally delivered in a time limited, outcomes focused manner and by an appropriately qualified and experienced practitioner to meet the individual needs of the participant’s circumstances. Necessitated by specific high complex needs or high level risks in a participant’s situation, to reduce complexity in the participant’s support environment in the context of broader systems of support, whilst also assisting the participant in connecting with NDIS supports, negotiating solutions with multiple stakeholders and building capacity and resilience.
Further qualifications/experience are required to strengthen a participant’s ability to design and build their supports with an emphasis on linking the broader systems of support across a complex service delivery environment. Coordination of Supports is to focus on supporting participants to direct their lives, not just their services. This may include resolving points of crisis, and developing resilience in the participant's network.
Assistance for participants to implement their plan by strengthening the ability to connect with the broader systems of supports and understand the purpose of the funded supports and participate in the community. Support Connection will assist a participant in understanding their plan, assisting in ongoing management of supports, and answering questions as they arise.
Why is Support Coordination Important?
Support coordination is essential for individuals with disabilities because it helps them navigate the complex system of services and resources available to them. Without support coordination, individuals may struggle to access the services they need and may not be able to fully participate in their communities.
