NDIS Made Easy: Benefits of Support Coordination in WA

Aastha Community Services

As Australia’s first national Scheme for people with disabilities, the NDIS makes sure that support and guidance are available for the NDIS participants at every step of the way. Support Coordination is one such capacity-building support that can be included in an NDIS plan to help the participants to better navigate the supports and services that they receive. The professional who delivers this particular support to the participants is known as a Support Coordinator. The primary goal of the Support Coordination service is to assist the participant in getting maximum benefits out of their plan and thereby help them reach their goals.

Support coordination is included in an NDIS plan wherever it is found to be ‘reasonable and necessary.’ There are numerous benefits to having support coordination added to your plan. A skilled and experienced support coordinator will help you find the right combination of support and services that will help your reach your NDIS goals faster. They will build your confidence by teaching you more about the NDIS and how to sail smoothly through various processes including plan reviews and service agreement negotiations.

Support Coordinators can arrange appointments for you and even handle unexpected crises such as service interruptions or cancellations. They will make alternate arrangements to avoid any inconveniences.

NDIS Support Coordination is available at three levels: Support connection, Support coordination and Specialist support coordination. Here at Aastha, a registered NDIS service provider, we can help you choose the level of support coordination that suits your needs. If the level of funded support coordination is already stated in your plan, we can help you connect with the best professionals who have many years of experience as support coordinators.
