What is Support Coordination?

Support Coordination is a ‘Capacity building’ NDIS funded support dedicated to helping implement all of NDIS supports within a participant's plan and connecting participants to (formal) mainstream and (informal) community supports.

Support Coordination is located under the Capacity Building Category with the NDIS price guide. Depending on NDIS participant's individual goals, plan objectives and aspirations, a person may receive Support Coordination funding in their plan.

Our Aspect Support Coordination team can provide support Coordination to NDIS funded participants who need to understand different budgets, how to start using their plan and how the plan is managed.

We also provide a NDIS recipient with:

  • Either Level 2 or Level 3 Support Coordination as per one's NDIS funding,
  • Assistance in understanding how to read a NDIS plan,
  • Help understand one's NDIS Budget and implement funding,
  • Provide linkages to service providers,
  • Provide a comprehensive progress report, support NDIS plan reviews and change of circumstances,
  • Offer support in understanding service agreements.

Level 2 - Support coordination

This support assists with building the skills to understand, implement and use the plan. A support coordinator will work with you to ensure a mix of supports are used to increase your capacity to maintain relationships, manage service delivery tasks, live more independently and be included in your community.

Level 3 - Specialist support coordination

This higher level of support coordination is for people whose situations are more complex and who need specialist support. A specialist Support Coordinator will assist participants to manage challenges within the support environment and ensuring consistent delivery of service.
