What it is Support Coordination?
Our experienced and trusted Support Coordinators are here to help you create pathways to achieve your goals. They help you navigate the complex NDIS system, manage your budget to ensure you get the most out of your plan and find the right people who offer the best quality services.
Support Coordination is a funded support under the NDIS that helps you to understand and implement your NDIS plan. At CatholicCare we will provide you with a Support Coordinator that will get to know you and what is important to you in achieving your goals. We will work with you to ensure a mix of supports are used to increase your capacity to maintain relationships, manage services, live more independently and improve your quality of life.
What are the benefits of Support Coordination?
Your Support Coordinator is there to support you to have choice and control over your services and how you use the funding in your NDIS Plan. The benefit of having a Support Coordinator is that you will have someone to support you every step of the way, whilst building your capacity to understand and manage your plan and supports into the future. Some more benefits to consider are:
- Expertise & Knowledge: Our support coordinators in these areas possess extensive expertise and knowledge of the local support networks, service providers, and resources available. They are familiar with the specific challenges and opportunities in these regions, ensuring participants receive tailored and effective support.
- Personalised Assistance: CatholicCare support coordinators work closely with participants to understand their unique needs, preferences, and goals, creating individualised support plans that align with their aspirations and maximise their potential.
- Local Connections: Our support coordinators have established strong connections with local service providers. This enables participants to access a wide range of high-quality supports and services conveniently, ensuring their needs are met efficiently.
- Navigating the NDIS: The NDIS can be complex to navigate, but with our support coordination, participants can receive guidance and assistance throughout the process. We help with plan management, explaining NDIS funding, connecting participants to appropriate services, and advocating for their rights within the scheme.

Our team actively coordinates and communicates with service providers, ensuring a cohesive approach to participants' support plans, reducing duplication, and enhancing the overall quality of service provision.

By providing the necessary tools, information and support, coordinators help participants build their skills, confidence and decision-making abilities, promoting greater independence and control over their lives.
