A Day in the Life of a Support Coordinator

No two days are the same as a Support Coordinator. I always start the day by logging onto my laptop to check if I have any meetings scheduled in, completing any emails, and attending to phone calls. This is the best way to start the day to ensure I know what is ahead of me and I can be as prepared as possible. 

A typical day in the life of a Support Coordinator consists of but is not limited to:  attending plan reassessment meetings, making new referrals for participants, liaising with providers and support networks, checking in with participants to ensure their current supports meet their needs, attending stakeholder meetings and completing plan implementations. The list goes on, this can vary day to day as mentioned no two days are the same.
This is what makes the role of a Support Coordinator unique as there is always something different happening each day for every participant. Having time with your team of Support Coordinators is very important to exchange ideas and liaising about new things you may have learnt throughout the day. Any spare time throughout the day is beneficial to use in additional training and ensuring I am up to speed with any NDIS changes.
