Good Support Coordination involves building skills so participants can exercise greater choice and control over the planning and implementation of their support.
- Helping the participant to develop skills and knowledge to become more independent;
- Assisting the participant to connect with mainstream, community and informal supports as well as NDIS funded supports;
- Giving multiple options for support to the participant and encouraging them to make choices;
- Explaining how the NDIS works in an understandable way;
- Supporting the participant to understand what services are available to choose from;
- Helping the participant to understand and exercise their rights;
- Working collaboratively with the participant, their family, carers and other professionals.
Your Support Coordinator is there to help you make choices about your disability support and plan for your future.
