What is Support Coordination?
Support coordination is a type of support that may be added to your NDIS plan. A support coordinator can help the participant to fully understand their NDIS plan and utilise their plan.

Some circumstances such as having a disability or a personal situation will determine whether you will receive funding for support coordination.

What Does a Support Coordinator Do?
Your support coordinator can do plenty of stuff, but they will focus on your choices and preferences. They will help you understand your NDIS plan, help you with your other funded supports, help you keep in touch with the community and access mainstream services, help you become more independent in your day-to-day life, and lastly, they will help you keep in touch and be closer to your family as well as your caretakers to make sure you reach your goals more steadily. They will also help you with your service agreements and help you understand them thoroughly. Although the participant should always be self-conscious about the fact that these support coordinators are only there to help and guide the participant, so they can’t have a say in the participant’s life and choices.
So, you should have full control over the decisions you’ve made. Your coordinator must also respect and communicate with you with your preferred way of communication. Your support coordinator also helps you understand your plan and some decisions you might need to make by breaking them into smaller parts, thus making it easier to understand.
