Disability support services in Australia underwent a major revamp with the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). But several community reports and user feedback available in the public domain suggests that the scheme can be too complex to understand for the newcomers. If you find yourself overwhelmed by the guidelines and eligibility requirements for an NDIS plan, you can avail yourself of the service of a support coordinator.
A support coordinator is simply another term used for the type of provider that can help you understand and utilize the supports and services you can access through your NDIS plan. Depending on the needs and life circumstances of the participant, their NDIS plan may include funds for support coordination. As you become more efficient in handling your plan, you can opt to self-manage your NDIS funding. Make sure that you ask a lot of questions and communicate your needs to the support coordinator before entering a service agreement. You have choice and control over the supports that you receive and you can switch support coordinators anytime if you are not satisfied with their service.
A good support coordinator must be a facilitator and they should never make any decisions on your behalf. Here at Aastha, a registered NDIS service provider, our disability support coordinators are up to date with all NDIS processes and are highly skilled in implementing NDIS plans without compromising your choice and control.
Our services are available in Perth, Joondalup, Mirrabooka, Morley, Osborne Park, Victoria Park, Canningvale, Maddington, Armadale, Cockburn Central, Kwinana, Rockingham, and Mandurah.
