What is Support Coordination?
Many people are unsure as to what Support Coordination is and why it might be included in an NDIS plan.
Support Coordination is included in NDIS plans to enhance your ability to manage and direct your own services.
Support Coordination will assist to connect you with other services that you may have funding allocated in your plan for such as a recovery coach, an occupational therapist, an exercise physiologist, a swim coach or a yoga teacher.
Support Coordination provides the flexibility to help you find the community, employment or accommodation options that are right for you.
