What Are the Rules for NDIS Support Coordinators?

Navigating the intricacies of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can be overwhelming for participants. Support Coordinators play a critical role in assisting NDIS participants to understand and utilise their plans effectively. They are instrumental in fostering independence, and ensuring that individuals with disabilities have access to the services they need to live fulfilling lives.

The Role of NDIS Support Coordinators

Support Coordinators are tasked with the responsibility of helping participants to strengthen their abilities to coordinate and implement supports and participate more fully in the community. They work alongside participants to understand the funding, identify service providers, negotiate services and prices, and develop and implement an action plan.

Guiding Principles for Support Coordinators

Participant-Centric Approach

Support Coordinators must always prioritise the preferences, goals, and aspirations of the participants. The person with a disability is at the centre of all decision-making processes, ensuring that their individual needs dictate the services and support provided.

Transparent Communication

Communication should be open, frequent, and straightforward. Support Coordinators must ensure that participants are fully aware of their plan management options and understand how their budgets are being used.

NDIS Code of Conduct

All Support Coordinators are required to adhere to the NDIS Code of Conduct. This code emphasises the rights of participants and promotes services that are safe, reliable, and responsive to individual needs.

Advocacy and Empowerment

An essential function of Support Coordinators is to advocate on behalf of the participants when needed and to empower them to make their own informed choices about how they wish to lead their lives and manage their supports.

Efficient Resource Management

Support Coordinators must assist participants in managing their plan budgets effectively. This involves ensuring that services are value for money and that support arrangements reflect the participant’s goals.

Compliance with NDIS Legislation

Support Coordinators must be thoroughly familiar with the NDIS legislation and the obligations it sets out. They need to ensure all actions are compliant with national standards and regulatory requirements.

Developing Individualised Plans

Each participant’s plan is unique, and Support Coordinators have the responsibility of developing and monitoring an individualised plan. This plan should align with the participant’s immediate and long-term goals.

Capacity Building Focus

A critical role of the Support Coordinator is to work towards building the skillset of their participants. This may include teaching participants to understand and use the digital NDIS portal or connecting them with community and mainstream support.

We are so pleased with the care Dad has been receiving from Kinder Caring, especially from Aster. She has shown professionalism and dedication. We appreciate the company’s flexibility in accommodating our requests, like Aster wearing a mask and gloves. The temporary rail adjustments and the proactive approach in ensuring the best care for Dad is commendable. Thank you, Kinder Caring.

Kinder Caring has been exceptional in their service. They provided a wonderful carer who is exceptional at what she does. Not only did they promptly get my quote approved, but they also took care of my window cleaning needs and organized transportation for my medical appointments. I couldn’t be happier!

A huge thank you to all the nurses at Kinder Caring. Having your expertise, caring attitude and ongoing advice meant we did not have to place Dad into a nursing home or send him to hospital and therefore his last days spent with Mum and the family were very special for us all.
