NDIS Support Coordination
What is a Support Coordinator?
A support coordinator is someone who can assist you to kick start your NDIS plan. Empowered has a team of Support Coordinators with various skills and backgrounds to suit a wide range of needs. Empowered Support Coordinators have the knowledge and the networks within both NDIS and mainstream support to Empower you to make your NDIS goals come to life.
Our Support Coordinators will work closely with you to ensure that you get the most out of your NDIS plan. They will help you understand and implement your plan in a way that suits you, we are committed to listening to your needs and preferences and providing options for NDIS and mainstream supports that match you best. They will also help build your ability to exercise choice and control, to coordinate support and access your local community. Our Support Coordinators will focus on supporting you to build skills and direct your life including working with you to find and connect to mainstream services such as employment services, government departments and advocacy services should you require.
Our Support Coordinators help you understand your NDIS plan and the different budgets and offer options on support provider available in your area. Once you have made your decision on what support provider you want to use, Empowered Support Coordinators will organise service agreements, negotiate services and prices as part of quotable supports and keep an eye on the budget to make sure you have continued support throughout your plan.
At the end of your plan, your Empowered Support Coordinator will assist you in planning ahead to prepare for your plan review. They will coordinate reports from your support providers including therapists to ensure NDIS have the evidence they need to provide reasonable and necessary funding in your next plan. Our Support Coordinators will prepare your progress report and guide you through any changed requests regarding your support needs or goals for the next plan.
At every stage, your Empowered Support Coordinator will be your point of contact for choice and control, NDIS plan implementation and monitoring and any change of circumstances that may affect your support needs.
