A lot of people are often confused about NDIS Support Coordination – What is it? And what benefits derive from this service? We’ll elaborate on the benefits of NDIS Support Coordination.
What is NDIS Support Coordination? The purpose of this service is to ensure you are able to get the most out of your NDIS funding package. Essentially the coordination manages your NDIS plan from top to bottom. It helps you with planning your journey, integrating the right tools for your requirements and connecting you to the right support network.
Here are some benefits that NDIS Support Coordination can provide to you:
1. Helping you understand your plan
It’s not an easy task navigating the NDIS and many steps might be confusing to begin with. Where do you start? A NDIS Support Coordinator can help explain your plan in detail and provide some clarity on how you can best achieve your NDIS goals. Besides that, a Support Coordinator will be able to help you with understanding the NDIS line items, rates and services that can be offered within your NDIS plan.
2. Connecting you to the right people
It’s important that you receive support based on your specific goals and needs. Every participant is on a different NDIS journey, meaning that they may need different approaches, support systems or arrangements to be put in place. A Support Coordinator will be able to provide a personal approach and connect you with professional support providers that are the right match for you.
3. Assisting you with being independent in the future
You’ll be taught along the way. Besides providing Support Coordination, you’ll be able to receive adequate information and skills to be able to manage your plan yourself in the future. Professional Support Coordinators will help you learn every step of the way so that you will no longer have to rely on them in the long term.
4. Your choice is at the forefront
Your NDIS Plan is about you. It should reflect who you are, what you value, and the life you want to achieve. Sharing your experiences and interests will help you and your coordinator create a plan that’s right for you. Providing a wealth of knowledge and experience, a Support Coordinator will assist you and guide you throughout the process, delivering trusted advice that can help you make confident decisions about your support.
5. You don’t have to deal with all the paperwork
Don’t we all hate paperwork? There is a lot of admin work that comes with an NDIS Plan, which can be extremely overwhelming. Keeping track of your NDIS funding and making sure you’re receiving the most effective results, is another benefit that an NDIS Support Coordinators can provide to you, without you experiencing the stress of having to stay on top of all your paperwork.
6. Connecting you to your local community
